This Was Actually An Accident

_MG_8812 Catcus Flower

Hello OLTL Readers! This photo was taken a few ago along with yesterday’s posted photo. The funny thing is that this was not the intended image. Purely accidental, the background was darkened due to the camera settings and became an unexpected surprise. I will be sure to take note of the settings next time for replication.


Droplets Fall Into Darkness


Photo taken today after the thunderstorm.

I decided to experiment with the camera settings a bit to achieve the darkened background. I have seen this technique in other photos but I was not sure how to achieve it until yesterday. This photo was a happy accident replicated today.

Yesterday’s “Happy Accident”…. will be posted later today.

Enjoy … until then!

I hope you enjoyed today’s photo! Please feel free to share your thoughts.
