Color week Tuesday

raindrops on orange rose blossom
Trite, perhaps – I know I personally take enough photos of rain and dew on things, but does that make it a bad or boring image? (Or just make me a bad and boring photographer? Good thing no one ever comments.) It usually helps a lot if the drop catches something distinctive and contrasty within, such as the sky providing the white edge in this case – notice how different the prominent drop appears from the others below.

But this is also a good argument for using muted light, such as heavy haze or even overcast skies like this day, to pursue colorful subjects. The subtlety in hues and textures tends to come out better.
