Petal drop

Petal drop It’s been cloudy most of the day here in Plymouth, UK. The sun kept trying to come out from behind the clouds but unfortunately the clouds won the battle of the day and then we had rain. At one point I thought we were going to be in for a storm with how dark it went by about 4pm this evening but it just rained for few hours before it decided to stop. After it had stopped raining I went out and took a few photos, the one I’ve posted here is one of them, enjoy. How’s your day been?

@kevin1877uk Thanks Kevin. When you wrote about the exact moment of the droplets featuring on the petals it is that difficult to take the picture. If you had done it. That proves who are a great photographer.

It's sad that tulip time is over now and we have to wait another year for them to come out again. Have you ever watched what happens to a tulip blossom when the petals have fallen off? If not, do it this year. It looks like a different flower.

Thank you, yes it's sad and I did notice that one yesterday the petal's were going, one already on the floor, I think by tomorrow they will all be gone. I'll take another when they have fallen off.

@kevin1877uk I don't mean the tulips you cut off and put in a vase. I mean the ones you leave in a flower bed. They change into bizarre looking plants. Wait and see.

@MALUSE Ok I think I know what you mean. I didn't mean about cutting them off, the rain took one petal of I guess seeing it was on the ground. I don't have flower in the house.

Thank you, I have a Canon 550D or otherwise know as the T2i with a 55-250 lens plus a 25 extension tube I used on this photo. I was at ISO 800 because it was getting dark, edited in lightroom, but no much edit been done. Hope that helps.

@kevin1877uk Thanks for the info. :) Do you ever sell your photos to be used as cards? Or do photo shoots, like for weddings or first baby pictures or anything like that? Looks like you would have a good talent for it.

Hi Kevin, Today for a change it was cool but better than it has been and we are hoping it means the weather will be nicer. I love the photo. My son was off work today since it was pretty nice out and not raining it got out the riding mower and cut the grass front, back and side and now the yard really looks nice again, nice day here thanks.

Does it rain a lot in the United Kingdom? I've heard England is really rainy, but don't know if that is true.

Yeah it does rain rather a lot, and I wish it would stop and be nice for more than a few days.
