Well, we are into a New Year and a new Monthly Challenge. It has been a busy month at my house getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas. We have taken a couple of week long trips to Florida during the holidays. On our most recent trip it rained the entire week we were there. We had tornadoes on the day before we left and about 5 to 7 inches of rain the same day. I did manage to get out for a few hours on one of the cloudy days after the rain quit and take a few pictures.
For this months challenge I decided to enter a shot of a red Hibiscus bloom that I took on my back porch one afternoon a while back.
I liked the yellow stamen against the red petals and the reflections on the water drops. I decided to crop it down into a portion of the bloom so that the image would have a more textural feel. Hope you like it.
Until next time —
