Photo Challenge

One of my favorite local bloggers, In a Yellow House, has been doing a photo challenge for the past several weeks, and I thought I'd participate this week.  The theme this week is NATURE. 

I took this photo of an azalea bush in my apartment complex shortly after a fresh spring rain.  I have a very simple digital point and shoot (Canon PowerShot Elph SD1000).  I usually just use the auto settings, but have found that the manual settings allow to me to create some really beautiful photographs.  I've been experimenting a bit and was really pleased with the way this one turned out.
