So often when I plan a photo shoot, it rains. I go on holiday, rain is almost guaranteed.

So this shot, I went to the zoo – all the animals were hiding, so I did the best I could with a rainy day.

    Sarah, I wish I knew what this was (OK, I gather it’s a Protea, but what’s that?) It is truly beautiful and the way you’ve shot it with the raindrops (how lucky you were that it rained!!) makes for a stunning picture.

    And thanks for commenting on my Big Apple… someone just bought a framed print of that today… wish I knew who it was!

    Wish it was me! Lol, but nope, keep looking for the buyer :)

    Thanks for the comment – proteas are flowers (obviously) that grow on a bush – quite large ones – this is just the tip of one. I think they pretty much grow all around the southern hemisphere.
