Serendipity 11038

Serendipity

n : good luck in making unexpected and fortunate discoveries.

I was climbing the hill behind my house to take some images of the growing cumulus clouds building over the Rincon Mountains to the northeast. As I climbed the hill, I noticed how the petals of these flowers, a pale gray-green, contrasted against the reddish-beige of the rocks and gravel of the slope. I haven't seen these plants previously anywhere else and as I climbed past them to get the shoots I was originally there for, I instantly previsualised this image. I had just added a few new tools into my Photoshop toolbox the night before I saw this image. It was serendipitous that I came across this scene the day after I learned how to properly reproduce what I saw in my mind's eye. Canon 20D - 1/100th, 18mm @ f/22, ISO 800
