Morning Star

In the morning, chaos of kids and family permitting, I like to photograph in the garden. The sun was rising, there was little wind, and water was just sliding off the dahlia drop. I used an improvised reflector–the white handkerchief I keep in my camera kit–to send some light into the dahlia bud, otherwise dark against the background.
