A Diamond Bush

A Diamond Bush

This is what greeted me through the kitchen window this morning—a common forsythia, bare of nearly all its leaves, transformed into a sparkling shrub of diamonds. Last night’s raindrops still held, pendant, along the arched branches and fully caught the sun at just that moment.

I used my cross-screen filter to enhance the brightest drops. Without it they appeared as simply flashed-out circles and not the diamonds I had envisioned. Certainly something beautiful to see first thing.
