This wasn’t a hard shot to take. The rose garden was adjacent to the Old Santa Barbara Mission and made for an easy to reach target-rich environment. A small rain squall had coated all of the flowers with just enough rain to leave raindrops on the leaves and petals without beating up the flowers. I took quite a few shots but this one stood out to me. I suppose I love the contrast of the deep green of the leaves and the coral of the petals. The rain drops just enhance the already pretty composition. Enjoy.
