I’m developing a bit of an obsession with these flowers – probably because A) they’re kind of hard to photograph since they grow just at the shoreline, so ideally, you’d have to wade out into the lake/creek, and B) they make for such a pretty, glowing contrast with the dark brown water.
Also, I’m writing a scene in my upcoming Midsummer story where these little darlings figure prominently. Someone wants to pick one, and accidents occur.
Plus, I’m learning about this big deal called bokeh, and the sun spangles in the water provide it to a certain extent (not trying to achieve it yet, but I can’t help but notice).
They’re a bit camera shy, though. Mostly they just want to gaze adoringly at the sun (on the other side of the water, which means wet sneakers for me).
