A day lily in hazy, humid morning light

I went out in the morning with my camera into the hazy and humid air that seems to be the rule this summer here in Vermont. I took several photos of day lilies and other flowers, but didn’t realize that my camera’s optics had kind of hazed up due to the humidity. Most of the photos were unusable, but this one had an dreamy, soft smoothness to it that I kind of like. I suppose you can pay good money for a filter that does the same thing (or do it in software), but there’s nothing like a happy accident!

Note to self: give you equipment time to acclimate!
