The rain was much needed and actually more would be helpful to the thirsty gardens. Photography on a foggy day avoids glare, but requires a higher ISO setting. I used 800 for many of these outside. The waterlilies are more prolific by the day and are beginning to be crowded by the emerging lotus leaves.
If you compare the image of the hibiscus outside and with a black background, both are attractive but the black is more poignant. What do you think?
