An evergreen macro

Well, as I've mentioned, it's been raining. We've been sailing through storm after storm, and we're enjoying it!

One day last week, I decided to come in to work a little bit early, to try and get ahead on a few projects that I'm working on. Apparently I came in early enough that they were doing some work on the electrical infrastructure, and so I was without access to my computer. While waiting, I decided to stroll around the parking lot, and look for some good photo ops.

I hadn't realized, but the combination of post-rain and early morning lent a cool aspect to the plant life. It all looked like it had been posed for a National Geographic photo shoot, and was delicately drizzled with drops of rain/dew! It was still pretty windy out, and so I didn't have a lot of luck with the flowers that were moving in the breeze, but this evergreen was heavy enough to stay in place and let me try to capture it:

 
Cool stuff, right? Feel free to click on the photo, and get an even closer look.
And do check out Macro Monday, over at Lisa's Chaos, for more close-up photography of the week. Happy Monday, everyone!

Water droplets add to the mood of the image. Nice shot -- beats working doesn't it.

It's amazing what early light plus dew or rain will do - likewise sunset and mist. Nice shot! Makes the evergreen look quite feathery. :)
