Early Morning Dew: Story Behind the Photo

Sunshine was starting to light the sky but the sun itself hadn’t risen yet above the horizon. It was a beautiful summer morning. I couldn’t sleep, so thought I’d take a drive in the country, down a road I’d never traveled before.

Much to my delight, I came across a field of flowers. All shapes and colors. I raced back for my camera, macro lens attached, and then clicked away as the sun was rising. It was still so dark that I never realized until I came back to my computer and downloaded the photos that there were dew drops on all the petals.

We photographers live for those moments when things turn out in our favor and we get those incredible shots.

Have you ever caught anything on camera, by accident, that surprised you in a lovely way? I’d love to hear your experiences!
