delicate rose (explored)

Flickr Explore #363 - October 20, 2009

 

Overnight fog led to small water droplets on flowers the next morning. Even better, Sunday morning was overcast -- wonderfully soft light and the droplets lasted longer than they would in sun. This lovely duotone rose is called "Party Time," and I loved the way it looked with tiny water jewels on the petals. (South Coast Botanic Garden, Palos Verdes Peninsula, California USA)

 

Enjoy the water jewels in the larger view on White
