Casualty of Monsoon

Life trauma in the balcony mini-garden.
Delicate flower, indelicate monsoonal downpour...something has to give.

I don't know how you've achieved this but it looks like ice. Fabulous, Ray!
Ray: I think the lighting had a lot to do with this, Mary. I used a penlight, place very close to the flower.

I was gonna say the same thing as Mary...this reminds me of the first frost! WOW!
Ray: Thanks, Ginnie. It was a bit too warm for frost. [grin]

Good capture of the water dropplets
Ray: Thanks, Vintage. Nothing was moving, so I had a bit of time to set the shot up.
This is a corker Ray...it sparkles.
Ray: Thanks, Bill. Placing a light source [penlight] very close to the flower helped a bit with the sparkle.

Wet-Wet-Wet. The flower can hold a lot of water on its surface. If you could all flowers to look like this you would make a fortune with weddings
Ray: Maybe I need to work on that...I could use a bit of extra cash about now. [grin]
Just like Louis I thought it had a wedding feel to it. It is a cracking pic, I assume you used flash, as I think it helped to get lots of small catchlights. I'm going to Likey itsmile
Ray: No flash, Nigel...just a small penlight placed very close to the flower.

Whao! I agree with Mary. It looks frozen. Noice, noice,noice. Words can't really describe this shot. You just have to look at it in wonder.
Ray: You are very kind, Affi.
love the waterdroplest, Ray!
Ray: Thanks, Kavita. The droplets are what attracted me to this fallen bloom.
Wonderful likey !
Ray: You are very kind, Monsieur!
