The weather is atrocious as I’m sure you know if you are in the UK. It’s not really ideal for macro photos as even when the rain stops it’s too windy! I sneaked out for five minutes today to try and get some shots of droplets on leaves. There was too much wind and not…… Continue reading Stormy Tears
We had some rain yesterday and overnight after a long dry period. The plants were crying out for it and so was I if I’m honest – the heat has been too much for me. This morning the sun was shining and the garden was covered in droplets so we had to pop out and…… Continue reading Morning Raindrops
The rain and mist went away for a while today, and we had some lovely sunshine. I took a few photos round the garden, and I rather like this one. You can see the sky reflected in this droplet on an Alchemilla leaf. Makes me think that if I drank this tiny droplet I’d get…… Continue reading A droplet of sky
The other day, the evening sun came out after rain and there were some nice droplets on the little Willow tree. I like this shot because my house is magically contained in the water droplet! It’s upsidedown but still, I think it’s cool 🙂 There were also a lot of droplets on the catkins and…… Continue reading Wet Willow
I’m in Bournemouth at the moment, visiting my sister. The other day we went for walk to a local pond which has lots of ducks, and as it turned out a lot of gulls too. Anyway, I took a lot of photos, as usual, and this one stands out to me. This duck was fearless…… Continue reading Serene Duck
I decided to put an extension tube on my 100mm macro lens and get some extreme close-ups of the flowers with water droplets on them. These are photos of the alstroemeria flowers. I took these on Monday … although I think it is now next Saturday by the time you are reading this! Scheduling posts…… Continue reading Extreme Alstroemeria Close-ups
This is the last of my photos of the bunch of flowers I bought last week. These flowers were slightly neglected due to their “ordinariness” (if that’s a word!). They do look nice with droplets on them though and they deserve a slot on the blog 🙂
The flower for today is a peachy carnation with dark edges. It’s quite a hard flower to focus on I found as it’s got so many frilly petals. I quite like the softness of some of these shots as they give it a dreamy quality.
Yup, I’m still going with the flowers, and there’s more to come! Today I bring you … pink carnations 🙂 Enjoy!
Today’s flower is a red and white carnation. Kind of reminds me of a candy cane with this red and white striping.
