Photo of a beautifully colored Lilly, taken at the Botanic gardens in Edinburgh.

Walked into the 'Hothouse' and the lens on my Camera instantly clouded over with the humidity. No matter how much I wiped the lens it simply wouldn't clear. Out of sheer frustration I just started shooting, hoping that the lens would acclimatize after a while.

Unfortunately it didn't and most of the shots were deleted. Whilst this one is 'fuzzy' with the condensation, I really loved the color and outline of the flower. Using Photoshop I added some grain and tweaked the saturation and contrast just slightly.

Camera:Sony A100
Lens:70 400mm (Very old and very heavy!)
Recording media:JPEG (digital)
