Worth The Effort


It has been an unusual summer here in the midwest. Much wetter than normal. In fact we had severe thunderstorms and tornado's streak through Des Moines this evening overturning cars and busting out windows.

I got this aster shot yesterday,In the area this is growing was an area the grass has stopped growing from the shade of a pear tree. To get a good vantage point I had to lay down in the damp dirt,getting my P'J's a bit dirty. The extra time I could take while I was down there to focus and recompose as needed payed off with this image.

It's a beautiful image and well worth getting damp over! I use to carry garbage bags with me for such a situation.
I hope those storms are done for the season now!
Take care!
Hug hugs,
