Dandelion in the Sun

I ran (the sun was going down and I knew I only had a few minutes, so I went as fast as my legs could take me) towards a spot near the lake behind shrubbery, spider webs, and potentially poisonous plants so I could get a better view of the sunset. I had already started shooting but I wasn't satisfied with the outcome. I turned from my position, ready to leave, when I saw the dandelions radiating in the sunlight. I plucked one from the ground about to make a wish but not before I held it up to the sun. That was my shot. I guess my wish ended up coming true in the end.
