After the Rain

The best time to make images of plants and flowers is right after it’s been raining, and the sun pops out from behind dark clouds. The sunlight and drops of water on leaves and flower petals makes for a special photo. In this case I captured two scenes, the first of our now-blooming Rhododendron bush next to the house, and the second of a small Lilly of the Valley plant which is just starting to spread. Next time it rains give this technique a shot…it may be worth your while.
