Glowing Spring Succulent

Balboa Park is one of the most iconic spots of San Diego. Right in the heart of the city is a large urban park that features a zoo, museums, urban hiking trails, and large shaded lawns. Balboa Park is a great spot to go for a walk, take in the city’s views, observe some incredible architecture, and look at the abundance of plant species on the property.

This particular shot was captured outside of one of the museums along the sidewalk. Interestingly enough, I actually went to the park to shoot some flowers in the park’s cactus garden (and ended up with this amazing shot of a blooming cactus). This particular day had off and on rain showers which left the leaves of some of the plant wet. I came across this garden of succulent that had some bright green colors to it and ended up with this photo.

The funny thing about this shot is that I wasn’t even expecting anything this bright and beautiful to come out of it. The waxy leaves of succulents and cactus are designed to retain moisture during the hot desert-like environment that they’re native to. What this causes when raindrops hit the leaves is an action like oil and water – the leaves target the water to the part of the plant that can absorb it.

I absolutely love this shot and the detail of the water, fibers of the plant, and the bright green colors. It’s one of the best photos I’ve ever taken – on accident.
