It was either rainy or cloudy the entire time on vacation. But, I’m German and Irish – so while others may rail against the bad weather, I’m out in it. It stopped long enough to put my feet on the beach, walk in the ocean and visit some very wonderful nature places. I feel that colors are more vibrant and rich after or during a rain.
This is one of the shots that I didn’t know I had until I reviewed my photos. My goal here was to get a nice close out of multiple water drops along the stem of a flower. For whatever reason I wasn’t getting good focus and just said oh well.. and move on. When I looked at my photos afterwards, I saw that I really liked this. The flower behind it is in focus and it either looks like mini suns or a strand of party lights hung up in front of the leaf. One of my favorites of the day.
