Well, sometimes the thing you intend to shoot just doesn’t pan out. This happened to me the other day on Duluth’s Park Point…rain and frequent and close lightning strikes sent me hustling back to the car. But like the saying goes, When you get lemons, you make lemonade, right? And in this case I made pink lemonade. The fuchsia colored flowers of the flowering crabs were at their peak so I decided to try something different and shoot them through the rain-streaked windshield of the Subaru. The result is a pleasing watercolor type look. An abstract study in green and pink…Pink Lemonade on a Rainy Day.

Canon 7D with Canon 70-200mm f4 lens handheld; Shot through rain-streaked windshield.
