“Pride In The Reflection” **Best Viewed Large**

This photo was taken while we were stationed at Fort Drum, NY. I was looking outside to see if the rainstorm that hit us suddenly had stopped and when I saw this branch on the tree right outside our porch, I was amazed to see the drops of rain that were still there. As I was taking a series of photos, the wind blew our flag right across in the background and I somehow captured it in the shot. It was not until I uploaded the photos to my laptop to see them on a larger screen that I realized I captured the flag INSIDE the raindrop. I am so very proud of the pure coincidence of this photo. Taken with my Nikon CoolPix P100 and enhanced just a tiny bit in Corel Paint Shop Photo Pro X4 to help make the clarity and colors pop out.
Thank you so very much for taking the time to look at my photo and sharing in my pride! If you would like to purchase this work of art, please stop by my Etsy Shop to order it 🙂
