After a sunrise shoot at Tempe Town Lake a couple of days ago, I went to the Desert Botanical Garden. The garden is a short distance from the lake and it seemed silly not to stop to see what I could find. Walking around the garden with only a few people it didn’t feel like being in the city. Much to my surprise was a large grouping of poinsettias completely covered in dew! With the early morning light they were so beautiful I stopped dead in my tracks and made several images. The vibrant red poinsettias looked like they were covered in sparkling sugar. I walked around the garden to look at all of the poinsettias to see what other images I could make and none were covered in dew. From the desert southwest I wish you all a Merry Christmas!
