Raindrops on Leaves and Flowers/ Fave Things

Hosta Leaves after a Shower
After a gentle summer rain, one of my favourite things to do is to take photos of water drops on leaves and flowers.

Sweet Peas Covered in Droplets

Called back to say thanks for your visit today and also to let you know about the lens for our camera... there is 3 lens.. the one like mine a tele converter, a wide angle one and a macro... I think the next one as to be the macro...

• Tele-converter 1.5x lens (Canon TC-DC58B)
• Wide-converter 0.75x lens (Canon WC-DC58A)
• Lens Adapter/Hood Set (Canon LAH-DC20)
• Close-Up Lens 500D (58mm)

The Lens adapter is needed as well for the lens.

Hope this is of some use... if you need to contact me feel free to do so,
Tom

I love photos showing drops of rain hanging from or sitting on plant leaves, limbs, about as much as snow on pine boughs! These are beauties!

Raindrops on flowers are one of my favorite things, as well. I often take my camera out after a rain and before the sun comes out. The dark colors seem darker and richer, while the light colors seem to shine. Great shots!

Mary said...

Yes! I love shots of water droplets, and yours are SO beautiful. :)

Excellent capture. Droplets are wonderful and you really have captured those superbly.

I agree with Sharon, amazing.

Beautiful! I use to say that looking at drops on a leaf after rain it's like looking at a tiny world of their own, through the reflexions.

Great FT. Just posted mine!

Kisses from Nydia.

Wow and Wow. On all the photos today. I will have that vision of the sky in my mind for a long time.

I love the wet on the sweet peas. Maybe I'll try growing those next summer.

Love the detail of delicacy and fragility in these pics!

Denise said...

Absolutely awesome!

I am late with my Thursday Favourite Things but it's up now.

Please could I use your evening primrose picture in a card design I am working on? I will obviously give credit to you but the colours are awesome. I'll send you some cards too if you e=mail me your address.

Thanks
