Yesterday brought us some much needed rain. Not a lot, but anything is appreciated and we did get intermittent showers. I had thought about going to Hawley Bog as mentioned yesterday but the threat of rain made me think of today instead. In the end I decided to go in the rain as I have to take my car in for service this morning and it is a 50 minute ride each way to Hawley. The pitcher plants were mostly on my mind, but I was happy to find this Canada Lily (Lilium canadense) along side the boardwalk.
Being restricted to the boardwalk limits the compositional possibilities. In this case I could not back up so shot with a 24-70 lens. But I also could not get as close as I would have liked for the water drops.
I am happy enough with this image, but would have loved to get parallel to the curved stem and have all the drops in a nice row and sharp as a tack. Instead I focused on the one drop that shows an entire flower and let the others fall into a supporting role. In hindsight, I think this works better without so much to draw your attention. I am also glad that I went on a rainy day for something a bit different.
