Sunlight Through a Fading Flower
« on: November 09, 2017, 10:24:42 AM »

Reading in my chair. Looked up. Ran and grabbed a camera.

I've done some PP in DxO's Optics Pro 11. It helps.

Never run, Russ; it can be very dangerous!

I honestly can't remember the last time I ran. I think it was in the 80s when my hat blew off and I tried to get to it before it went over the moorings quay into the sea; but it (I) was too late, and the thing was soaked when I retrieved it. I think the previous run was during the 50s. Not something I do every day - or even did every day, ever. But I do manage to walk for at least an hour each day.

As summer weather is but a distant memory almost a week or two old, the walks may soon be accompanied again by a camera because the sunshine is becoming more rare and clouds fit me (photographically speaking), the darker the better.

I used to run a lot in younger days. Eve did (short) triathlons for a while, but no more.

Russ, I hope you ran gently to get the camera and then walked briskly back for the photo. 

Good result.

Fortunately I only had to run into the next room for the camera. But I had to run because the sun was moving rapidly and I was about to lose the light. Next morning the flowers went into the trash and they couldn't pose any longer.

Speaking of the sun's rapid movements and perfect timing:

"At precisely 11:11 a.m. each Veterans Day (Nov. 11), the sunís rays pass through the ellipses of the five Armed Services pillars to form a perfect solar spotlight over a mosaic of The Great Seal of the United States.

Happy Veterans Day, Russ!

Fascinating, Slobodan. And thanks. Every veterans' day is a happy one because I'm still here.

Oh, heck no. When tulips and day lilies die back, they get even more interesting.

Good catch, Russ. The photo has a dreamlike quality.

Neat as well as poignant.
