Rose at Dawn

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by kate zack

I like to walk in my garden very early in the morning. I spotted this rose, so perfect in the early light. I dashed in and grabbed my Canon EOS Rebel T1i (EF 55-250 lens) and adjusted it to an setting (ISO 400 f 5.6 @1/80) that let the lovely early light from the rising sun reflect softly on the rose. The lone drop of water was hiding under the petal and from my naked eye.

Location: Pleasant Hill, Ca United States
