Photo of the day: Lupine alight

Lupine alight, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
Here's yet another photo taken while geocaching--in this case, making a first-to-find in Lebanon, Oregon. It had rained overnight, and lupine are always especially beautiful with water droplets glistening on their tiny hairs. This particular lupine, through some trick of lighting, seemed positively glowing as the morning light caught the wet edges, a phenomenon that looks even better in black and white. In addition to the great contrast, I love the repeating shapes in this image, and I'm especially pleased with the perfect depth of field, which keeps the top whorl of leaves in focus while the ones in the background disappear into the blur.
