Mtlawleyshire and raindrops

Posted on

Simply love it!!!!


My canon lens does wonderful macros.  I have been playing with raindrops – mostly in the garden.  It requires such precise conditions: sunshine at a precise time (11 ish in the morning) so it reaches my courtyard just after rain:


A raindrop on a jasmine stem refracting house and cloudy sky & catching a little light while refracting the garden

the best of the drops on jasmine: light exploding around refracted garden:


raindrops on parsley flowers:

on nasturtium leaves:

a parsley leaf bejewelled and on a needle of a native hibiscus:

one drop on a native violet and tiny drops caught in a bud of lavender:

and outside the confines of my courtyard: a beautiful rose-bud with extra beauty, and on the buds of a Geraldton Wax

There won’t be many more of these – we are having a dry warm end…
