The weather is changing here and they’re saying on the weather forecasts that it’s going to get more autumnal. There may well be rather more rainy days than we’ve had lately. On one rainy day I took these droplet photos, and as you may have noticed, I liked one of them enough to make it my new blog header! 🙂
There’s not a lot to see in the garden this evening. It’s been raining much of the day and I took a brief potter about, but there wasn’t much sun left and it was mostly raindrops and spiders … so that is what you get! Looking forward to a week off work next week. Fingers crossed for some dry weather for some walks.
There’s not a lot out there for the macro photographer at the moment. I guess this is the time of year to switch to landscapes, but still I look for the small things. I just can’t help myself. Today I had a little potter about outside while it was dry and fairly bright. Quite squelchy underfoot, and the bird bath had been topped up by the rain so that this little mound of moss appeared to be a tiny desert island in a tiny sea! Not the crispest shot ever, but I still like it for its reflection and island-like feeling.
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 really enough light and my shots didn’t come out how I wanted them to, so I decided to do some tweaking and this is what I’ve ended up with. Not quite like reality, but I like the way it looks like glistening teardrops.
