Earth day is one day, and yet every day is different, except in Arizona. Here we seldom get rain but what a change it makes, even for an hour or two. Seeing this puddle with common weeds change in this twenty minute down pour was up lifting. The weeds stood tall and the rock became bolder and yet floated, the backlit grey sky isolated the objects in water for their 15 minutes of fame. Next year we hope to have another good rain and another chance to see a change in our environment.
My phone was the capture device so input on this productions was basically composition, saturation, and brightness. My regret is not having a larger camera, tripod, and boots. I confess, the larger file size and flexibility to change f/stop and shutter speed, well they are my “safety net” and or crutches. So, with this rain and the “point n shoot device”, the day turned out to actually be refreshing.
