This week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is ‘All wet’. There are many dandelion clocks (seed heads) in my garden. Some people don’t like dandelions and treat them as weeds, trying to wipe them out from their neat lawns. Not me. Apart from the fact that I like how they look, they are good food for bees…… Continue reading Damp Dandelion Clocks
Last weekend I bought myself an Anemone plant. It was already flowering with lots of buds so I was excited to get it into the ground. Since then it has rained a lot and when I went out to take photos of them yesterday, they were looking a bit battered. The ground beneath was strewn…… Continue reading Imperfect Perfection
I realised something this morning … it was not raining! It was actually quite dry and bright! So I grabbed my chance to nip out for a quick walk around the village. I’ve not had a chance to get out for ages what with the weather and not being well a week or two back.…… Continue reading Respite
Today the weather is crisp, cold and bright, after a lot of wetness overnight, so I had a little potter in the garden looking at the droplets shining in the sun. With the weekly photo challenge in the back of my mind, I was looking out for threes … In response to the Weekly Photo…… Continue reading A Trio of Droplet Trios
When stalking raindrops it is important to be careful or you risk destroying the very thing you seek… Today I was being extra careful as I was trying to avoid doing anything to vigorous that would disturb my delicate head after a migraine yesterday, as well as avoiding destroying raindrops. When the sun came out for a while after…… Continue reading Stalking Raindrops
Sunday started out rather wet. Later on when the rain stopped and the sun came out, the droplets were calling to me! As it was a still day the droplet just hung there even on the most delicate of plants.
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…… Continue reading Rainy Days
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…… Continue reading Raindrops & Spiders
The weather has been a little better today. The sun shone on the very wet garden and I couldn’t resist … droplets! I love how these photos came out – lovely reflections and such a lush green off all the grass around it. Well worth getting the bottom of my jeans wet for!
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…… Continue reading Moss Island
