Another early morning.

If I wake up early and see any signs of a mist I feel compelled to go out and take some pictures.

Surface tension

Surface tension: water on an onion flower head
I was originally going to add this picture to my running thread on "After the rain", but I think it stands on its own.

It rained again yesterday morning, but eased up around lunchtime. I took my camera down the garden, and found that the onion plant that I posted a picture of earlier (#4 in the previous thread) had opened into a flower head. The light was very soft from a completely grey overcast sky, so all I did was to add a little light from a reflector underneath to open up the shadows in the interior.

One other small difference to the previous thread: this time, rather than toning the shadow regions, I toned the highlights.
