“Rainy Day Goat’s Beard”
“Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet.”
― Roger Miller
Another rainy day image, though the rain has finally moved on. It was so cool and wet this day that the Goat’s Beard blossoms remained partially closed. This one had a special appeal to me because of the raindrops that cling to it, a reminder that it was, in fact, raining that day, lest I forget.
Though I find myself grumbling about all the rainy days, it did make for some nice images. The dull skies allowed me to expose for longer, creating a bit more saturation and the rain gives everything a clean, lustrous appearance. This effect is especially noticeable in wildflowers, which just seem fresher when damp than they do on dry, sunny days.
As one who really does not mind getting wet, this all works out, provided I’m not caught in a downpour, and even those, have their magical moments.
