Sunrise 5:48 am: Painting quality iris photo

Soon after the Dawn Joggers headed off for their Saturday "Big Dish" run this morning, they came across some lovely irises. Framed against a backdrop of concrete, the resulting photo has a painting quality. Most First Blush photos are shot with a Lumix FX9, which has a Leica lens. It's very light weight and fits easily in a pocket of running shorts. The male DJ has been a photograher since he was a teenager and spent his early career as press photographer doing mainly feature work. Lately he's been waxing poetically about his camera equipment (and eyeing new equipment!) on his blog. An archive of black and white photos shot mainly in the 80s brings back many memories.
PS: the water had been turned off into Lake Lagunita; saw what must have been the last of this year's crop of frogs.
