Marigolds in the Rain at Dusk


Snapped these last night in the rain just as it was getting dark. I was curious to see how to the lack of light would effect the shots since I use a cheap camera with no special lighting. They’re actually better than I imagined they’d be. As usual you can click images for larger size.

  1. Beautiful!
    Thank you for sharing


  2. What’s your secret to such good blooming marigolds?? Since I moved to the coast, mine just keep dying???


    • Humm. Maybe the salt air. Mine are doing okay, but not as well as I’d like. Something keeps eating the leaves off the smaller variety. And they say nothing will eat marigolds. Not true. LOL. Thanks for taking time to comment, my dear. ((hugs)) 🙂
