130113_145441_27658 The Difference Of A Week (Sun 13 Jan 13)

At Home, Illawarra, NSW

Last Sunday's PAD was of this very same tree, though perhaps not the same flower. That one was being blasted by the harsh midday light and casting an equally harsh shadow on itself.

This week things have changed markedly. Today is cool, and has been overcast all day. Not so very long ago it started raining. Not the solid, drenching rain that we could do with to suppress the bushfires across the state, more an extended sprinkle than what I'd call true rain... but enough to dust the same flowers with water drops rather than an intense blast of UV radiation.

Much as that has changed, I've spent most of the day working on a new system that I am so close to being over it ain't funny. Regrettably that hasn't changed since last week.

Excellent capture of the vibrant colour of the petals, offset well by the water drops and the green background in soft focus.

A beautiful macro shot. Raindrops always win out against harsh shadows on flower petals :-)

Lovely color and flower and the rain drops are like jewels adorning it.

Beautiful. The water drops add a sense of coolness, but I know that is false. Great shot Alan.

this is a very cool shot. To the point I'd like to make this my screen picture on my 24 inch Mac Monitor! This is stellar. The word I keep coming to is calming and I need calm in MY life with it's hectic pace... Voted-
