A Drizzly Fall Morning...

...brings beauty to the eyes of beholders

Our morning trek began later than usual today because we needed to go to the bank and Post Office after they opened at 9 A.M. It rained lightly yesterday afternoon, and all through the night, letting up this morning as we made our way into town under a sky of broken clouds and rainbows.
As we walked along the sidewalk, approaching the signal light at the entrance to the Interlaken Shopping Center, where the bank, the Post Office, and Von's Supermarket are located, I happened to notice this leaf lying on the concrete.
Yes, it's just one fallen leaf clothed in raindrops, but it's the one, of thousands, that caught my eye and the diffused light made for a very nice image.
Shot with our Canon S10IS in Manual/SuperMacro mode, ISO 80, f 8, at 125th second. As recorded by the camera - not cropped.

Beautiful photo of a beautiful leaf. The rain has cleaned everything here in San Francisco.
I just got a new camera and have found the super macro mode, but have no clue how to use it manually.
