Our wealth lies not in what we have, but in what we enjoy. – Anonymous
So where the clear light of day would need only 20 seconds for preparation and never more than a second for exposure, I choose the half-light of evening and belabour the task for far too long… It must be the challenge and the beauty of brilliant moonlight on a still winter’s night.
Some will prefer a darker feel of night, but sometimes I like a daylight effect. The telephoto has a highly selective focus at close range, used to good advantage here. Raindrops from an afternoon shower can be seen on the petals.
85mm, ISO 2000. f2.8 for 25 seconds
