A Little Morning Rain
Life, believe, is not a dream
So dark as sages say;
Oft a little morning rain
Foretells a pleasant day.
Sometimes there are clouds of gloom,
But these are transient all;
If the shower will make the roses bloom,
O why lament its fall? ~Charlotte Brontë
Or, in this case, the hostas bloom... :)
We had a morning rain shower last week and I captured some lingering raindrops on our hostas. I love sunshine, but clouds sure do make for wonderful lighting in photos.
I used Kim's Cora texture at Multiply/41% for this image, plus some Radlab and some tweaking of Levels in PSE to make it a little more matte.
