The Roswell Photographic Society gets special permission to shoot the three big historic homes in Roswell each year. This weekend, we went to the Smith Plantation Home which is right next to City Hall. After spending half the morning inside, I took a walk around the grounds and stopped in the garden when I saw this ornamental cabbage.
It was an overcast day with a little rain on and off but the light wasn’t bad by the time I was wrapping up around 12:30. With the water drops on its leaves, the high-contrast colors and the wonderful textures, it was obvious that I had to stop and capture this image. Even on a rainy day, there are beautiful images to be had.
