Garden photography - light is everything...

Too often I'm too late to catch that perfect morning light that illuminates the garden and brings our plants to life.

This morning, I decided to wait on breakfast and to ignore distractions.  I ventured out with my camera to capture something special.

But the hottest summer sun is behind us and our mornings are cooler and overcast.

The dawn light on my Franzosini agave caught my eye.

And this is what my camera caught when the flash felt compelled to go off.

Pretty cool, huh?  No editing, photo shopping or enhancing.  Just this.

No filtered morning rays to wish you a good day, but perhaps instead an early, eerie Happy Halloween from my garden!
