I had a bit of a conflict on Sunday afternoon. Mary Beth and I both enjoy watching football (American) and especially the Patriots. But Sunday afternoon saw bright overcast skies with occasional outbreaks of sunlight. Gentians require midday sunlight to open but the bright overcast is better for photography. It was a nice combination to make some images. What to do? Listen to the game on the radio during the half hour trip each way and then arrive back home in time for the third and fourth quarters. Cake and eat it too. 🙂
Once there, only a few were open to my surprise. The buds I posted Sunday morning from a week ago should have been opened, but I guess not all were pleased with the overcast, bright though it was. I only needed a couple so it was a successful trip.
I looked around for something a bit different from what I usually do.
And, the Patriots won their game.
