Blue By Mistake

This was intended to be a photo of grape leaves wonderfully rich in autumnal golds and olives, washed in morning sun with just a few pendant raindrops like gems hanging on the tips of the leaves, and it was to be entitled, “Last Night’s Raindrops”.

However, I left my camera on totally inappropriate settings, intended for low-light photography and filtering out incandescent light.

But this is lovely in its own right, ghostly, mysterious, the leaves appearing to be mirror images as odd angles to each other, one in the light, one in the dark.

There are definitely mistakes, but this is not one of them.
