A couple of days ago I ventured out into the miserably cold and rainy weather to take some pictures for you guys. It wasn’t very comfortable, but the results were worth it! 😛 I mainly used my macro lens extension tubes to get lovely close-ups of the jewel-like raindrops that coated everything like frost.
If you’re in need of some spring-y, fresh green in the middle of a dull winter, read on! 😀
Ahhh, it never fails to amaze me how nearly PERFECT raindrops are. I mean, just look at those tiny, shining globes of water. Is it weird that they make me so happy? XD XD
I love catching the reflections in water of all kinds. It’s kind of hard to make them out in such a tiny mirror, but it still looks neat – kind of like there’s a tiny world in a crystal drop.
This picture reminds me of a succulent, or maybe a sundew with sticky drops. I like how the water is all lined up along the grass blade. 🙂
Look, I found a color beside green! YAYYYY.
Ooh, I love this one! Winter gives me a good appetite for flowers; I’ll look on even tiny henbit blossoms with pleasure. 🙂
Hee hee, you can see the reflection of my camera in this huge drop.
I’m not sure what this weed is, but it was covered with fuzz that caught tons of moisture and made the plants look silver from a distance.
Ha ha, the reflection of my camera makes it look like these drops are frog eggs or something, doesn’t it? XD Also isn’t it neat how the biggest waterdrop magnifies the texture of the grass blade so you can see the little lines?
More frog eggs on a twisted banner of grass. 🙂
Here’s a further-away view which I took with just my 35 mm lens. You can see how completely coated the grass was!
AHHH WHY ARE THEY SO PRETTY?
After a long while, I moved on from that little patch of field and walked toward our mailbox at the end of the lane. I had to stop for this garlic grass by the side of the path. 😛
I think cedar trees are rather ugly as a whole, but up close they can be pretty, particularly if they have berries.
Ahh, I love the lighting on this one. It looks so fresh and springy, doesn’t it?
We shall end with a rather brown but still pretty picture. I absolutely LOVE how it looks like this tasseled grass is strung with diamonds. Isn’t it lovely and delicate?
Well, that’s it for today, my friends. I hope those pictures made you as happy as they made me. 😛
Which photo was your favorite? Would you like to see more macro photography? Do you like photographing raindrops too?
Thanks so much for reading, dears, and have a lovely day!
