It's Difficult To Lift Your Eyes Upto Heaven When The Raindrops Weigh You Down by 

The back of a Pansy weighted down with raindrops was the inspiration for this image. This Pansy had been in full glorious bloom before a rain shower arrived. The raindrops were beautiful to behold, reflecting the glorious purple color of the Pansy underneath, however the raindrops were so heavy that the flower began to close. Sometimes our burdens, real or imagined, are so heavy that we begin to close in upon ourselves. It becomes more difficult to lift our eyes to heaven and ask for help with those burdens. There is always a solution to our problems but none will be forth coming if we don’t first, ask. In the case of this Pansy, I just flicked off the raindrops and a little while later it was again in it’s full glory.

I’m a 66 year old retired grandmother that loves photography. I love being out in nature and love lots of color, so Autumn is my favorite time of year.
Forests and forest light, waterfalls, flowers and insects are also some of my favorite subjects to photograph.
