Inside the Azalea

I love wet flowers. There is something magical about water pooling up on the petal of a flower. That is what attracted me to this azalea. I liked the way the sunshine was dancing on the surface of the water.

This is another photo from my archives. I like the composition, but I have always felt that the quality of the image was not quite good enough. This is another example of the colour red giving me a hard time. Whatever the case, I still love the way the water is collecting at the edge of the bottom right petal.

Canon PowerShot S2 IS, 6mm, f/6.3, 1/100 sec, ISO 50

I like getting shots with petals and leaves dewy or wet just after a rain.

This is very pretty, but I see what you mean about the red it looks like some detail is lost. Not sure what to do about that. It's pretty though.

You nailed the red in this one Tim...and I agree...I LOVE when there is rain or dew on flower petals. Great shot!
