After the rain

April 11, 2010

Hoped to visit the Japanese garden last week but alas had to postpone going for a hanami (花見) as it rained pretty much all through that weekend.

Even though with all the rain we had last weekend, did venture outside to snap a few shots of the soaked flowers and leaves when the sun broke through the clouds during a brief pause in the rain.

These Camellias were just starting to blossom, some of the buds had already opened but others were still closed, liked the effect of the rain drops on the flower petals and leaves.

Being an evergreen shrub, Camellias will sport leaves all year round, these had smooth, curved leaves that were rather tough, even thick.

Luckily the weather turned around during the week so headed off to the Japanese garden today to enjoy the sun and have a relaxing afternoon watching the cherry blossoms. Will share this year’s hanami photos someday later.

Also snapped a few random shots of other soaked foliage and bushes about.

Took all of these photos freehand with the Canon 450D equipped with EF-S 15-85mm lens.

Am approaching 200 photos on my Flickr account, will probably need to upgrade it to a Pro account one of these days.

You can see more photography here or on my Flickr photostream.
