Dew-drenched grasses in morning sunlight.

The other morning, while out looking for sidelight to fulfill an assignment for The Mindful Eye, I came across this beautiful backlight instead.

After several days of heavy rain, humidity was high but skies were mostly clear and there was no wind. Everything sparkled with dew.

  1. Hi, April.

    You are back again! This is great.

    We can really feel the humidity in this picture. All the small circles in the bokeh evoke dew drops. Nice combination of red-violet and green here.

  2. April, this is such a wonderful and again simple yet elegant image. I left my other comments on TME’s forum.

  3. Micheline and Flo, thanks for taking the time to visit and comment.

    I’m exploring some approaches that are different for me, and though intrigued by the possibilities haven’t yet been satisfied with the outcome. This is one I liked. 🙂

  4. Such a delightful image, April. Everything glitters in the light. It reminds me of a fine piece of diamond jewelry.

  5. Marti, diamonds were exactly what went through my mind, and it’s a delight to know that’s what the image conveys. Thank you so much for your feedback.
