Today, I’m trying to take a different perspective on all the rain.  

"Fresh Bloomers" (Japanese Pieris Blossoms) Nikon D300, 105mm F/2.8G Macro, F/6.3, 1/200s, ISO 640

Maybe Mother Nature is simply doing her laundry! 🙂


  1. Very pretty, I’ve never seen those before.

    And is it laundry, or a good pre-wash SOAKING? 😉
    Hope there’s an end in sight!

    • I’m sure you have…medium sized bushes with drooping clusters of these tiny bell-shaped flowers. They are one of the very first shrubs to bloom in spring. Very, very common. I just made them look pretty. 😉

      Well, they certainly did get a soaking and look how CLEAN they are! ha!

  2. Wonderful photo. The water drops add a great sense of spring.

    • Thank you, Sean. With all the flooding and rain we’ve had, it has been pretty difficult to find inspiration! These were the only things in bloom in the landscape and I’ve not photographed them before.

  3. I think you are doing quite well, making these nice water photos! They look fresh and even colorful and optimistic! I think the rain stays with you, because you are so good at capturing it…!

    • Thank you, giiid. I’m not sure if I find this comforting! If I take a bad photo, then will the rain go away? 😉

  4. Has it cleared off yet, Tracy? I have clear blue sky above me today.

  5. Simply beautiful….love the colors of this.

    • Thanks, Jan! This was a very lat-in-the-day shot and I am just so glad it worked out!

  6. Nice shot of our common flowering bush. The rain is back, but spring is finally in full bloom.

    • Thank you, Lynn. I find these little flowers to be troublesome to shoot interestingly. In this case, the rain definitely helped. It could go away now…;-)
