Rose   –   This is a small bush rose one of my neighbours gave me a few years ago when she cleared her border. I have no idea if it is named or not and there isn’t much of a scent but it is doing its best to look pretty in the morning sun.

Only when looking through the images on the pc did I notice the thousands of tiny dew drops on the petals, – thanks to my not so great eyesight and my shoddy (as always rushed) technique I  completely missed them when I was taking the photograph. In my defence I hadn’t expected to see dew as this far north in the country the sun rises early, about 04.40 this morning in fact, and while I was up early it wasn’t this early – I have too much going on in the daytime to survive that. 

It was just by sheer luck that I used appropriate settings  – I wasn’t so lucky with other pictures where I did mostly what I usually do which is go for the narrow depth of field. Unfortunately that kind of destroys the cute look of the little droplets, and it’s not as if I could go back later to re-take the shot as the dew doesn’t last in this glorious sunshine… Oh well, another thing to bear in mind when getting the camera out. Apart from taking glasses, that is.
