Raindrops on Lilies

As it turns out, it does rain in the desert – nearly every day for the past month, in fact. These day lilies are out in our flower box. They love the moisture, and I had fun playing with my macro lens, trying to get just the right angles and focus. For fun I ran the Moody Lustrous Pop action from The Coffee Shop Blog, and I loved how it turned out, especially with a little extra darkening along the edges and a grainy texture.
