A brief autumn shower can often bring out the most beautiful glints in the low light of the October evening sun. I looked up from my desk and just caught the sun lighting my front garden.
Obviously, I took the shot first and thought afterwards. Learn from your mistakes, but I just keep repeating all the old habits.
The transient nature of the scene may be frustrating, but it adds to the overall poignancy. And, as usual the camera (or maybe it’s the photographer!) doesn’t quite capture the full experience, but the gently fading echinops and eryngium seed heads dripping in the rain are still beautiful.
