Due to two days of fairly heavy rains today was the first time I was able to revisit Machimoodus State Park. The sky was brooding when I arrived and stayed that way until I had packed up and was driving out of the park. That is when the sun peaked out for a quick look.
This time I had my tripod and a clean lens. Since it was sprinkling on and off I also carried my huge Ikea umbrella which came in handy to keep moisture off of my camera and as a wind block. The wind always seemed to kick up any time I tried to take a closeup of a flower on a long stem.
