Good Morning Starshine

Day 189 of 365

Another monstrose cactus flower opened up, but was already closing up around 9:00 am…way too soon for me! I scrambled to put 2 of the Omni Filters on and take photos before it closed any further. Even with it being overcast the filters created some cool looks. The Stretch Glass filter was on a diagonal on the right side, while the Scalloped Window blurred the diagonal on the left.
