26 Aug 11. Another fantastic fall day was experienced on Thursday, along with a cloudless blue sky and a sunset that turned Mt Rainier into a lush peachy blush and concluded the evening with Ol' Sol looking like a golden-orange orb as he made his departure for the day. A lovely sight if ever there was one. The color of that sun reminded me of a California Poppy more than anything else, so I've elected to go with another poppy shot. This was one of the series I described yesterday, but taken a bit later in the morning which gives it a more orange color as well as being substantially brighter. The morning moisture still remained, not yet having had time to evaporate, so I used a very small aperture in an attempt to get as many of the dew drops in focus as possible. A small subject with lots of potential, with it being walking distance from my home, it serves to emphasize that you don't have to go far to find good material. ISO 200; 1/250 sec @ f /16.
