"For art to exist, for any sort of aesthetic activity or perception to exist, a certain physiological precondition is indispensable: intoxication." Friedrich Nietzsche

JEWELS IN THE RAIN

In Georgetown is the Sunken Garden. I try and visit several times a year. This morning was my second time this year. A visit last month didn't yield much but today there was an abundance of colorful lively flowers soaking up the rain.
It was barely drizzling when I arrived around 9am. 


But pretty soon it started to pour and like a knight on a quest I kept shooting with my D7000 which is supposed to be water proof. I'm not so I got soaked. But it sure was fun.





                                                               Here the lens started to fog.


The only lens I used was the Nikkor 35mm DX/50mm FX with the NC filter pulled. On the images where it's predominantly one flower I used a 2x close-up filter.
