Another one from the back yard.

TUESDAY AT THE COAST was super foggy. This made the low tide coming in the middle of the day not a bad thing.

you know what really 'makes' this for me? That lovely garden ornament in the background. It adds depth, texture, and hints to a story or at least to place. Very nice.

Hard, bright plant, soft muted background, and the garden ornament for interest-very nice!

That's a very hard contrast, I almost need my sunglasses despite it being evening light ;) I also like that garden ornament, beautiful contrast with the bright flower.

Yes, the garden ornament is a nice counter-weight to this bright bright flower.
I am fascinated by the hard yellow edges of evening sun etched on the edges of the petals.
