Bells after the Rains

It rained all night on our first night in Banff, but we were quite comfortable sleeping in our tents. The next morning we woke up to heavy fog and mist. Everything was covered in rain drops… including these pretty little blue bells.

This image is all about composition and white balance. I chose my white balance carefully to bring out the fresh green color of the grass. I had to experiment with the composition to eliminate distractions from the background. I left the background slightly blurred – in order to show some details… but let the subject stand out.

Sometime, when I photograph flowers, I gently adjust the position of the flower for a better composition – but in this case I didn’t want to touch the flower at all for fear of losing those water droplets.
