When it comes to nature, I have found that I often enjoying returning to a place where I have shot pictures before and looking at it with a fresh eye. A little time, a change of seasons and growth in my skills can give me a new perspective. Sometimes, the scene itself changes in an unexpected way.
The other day, I returned to the same batch of lilies that I shot a couple of weeks prior. The blooms were fading, and their petals curled in a wonderful way that I found even more pleasing than when they were fresh and young. The late afternoon sun made them a really saturated orange, and the water drops from a sudden summer shower gave them an added element that just wasn’t there the first time I shot them. It was well worth the bottom soaking I got from sitting on the ground.
