Artist's Description

As a member of my local botanic garden, one of the perks is that I can enter early (8 a.m. instead of 9 a.m.), and that extra hour can make a real difference in both light and catching the results of morning watering, or dew, or rain. This dramatic purple dahlia was still wet from an early morning shower, early sun was already strong, and my homemade diffuser made all the difference in capturing rich detail in the dark-colored petals. (If you look closely, you can find multiple reflections of my diffuser in this image.) (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/11, 1/100 sec., ISO 1600, diffused morning sun, handheld)
