Leica M10 – Flowers after rain through 50 Lux

If someone asks me when might be the best timing for flower photos, I wouldn’t hesitate to say it’s right after rain. Generally natural light gets perfect right before sunset which is often called golden hours, but when it comes to flowers rain makes the color more pop.

I don’t know its English name, but this is kind of cherry blossom flowers. It usually blooms when regular cherry blossom flower season is over. In spring, it’s big part of my fun to take photos of various flowers in timely order, I was so busy lately so I could’ve missed it. Thanks to rain, I managed to take the time to shoot this previous flowers.

Pink, white and yellow flowers come alive after rain. While shooting fresh smell from flowers are extra bonus. I wonder how this came out in film photos. Can’t wait to develop it!
