Archive photo of the day: Hands-on experience
Well, as it turns out, the answer to that question is: KIDS! This young lady had the time of her life playing in the mud around her tent, helping to redirect the flow of rainwater around the tent rather than under it. Her parents, to their credit, didn't panic in the wet weather, either. "We brought dry clothes," they said mildly. "It's part of the experience."
I captured this image with a fill flash, and I'm really pleased by the bright colors and high contrast that resulted, with the tent in the background just a little darker, less bright, and out of focus.
