Nope, this post isn’t going to be deep thoughts about gardening or anything. Just some pretty macro raindrop photography. 😉
As you probably know if you’ve followed me for a little while, water drops are one of my favorite photography subjects, and this time I even managed to capture a few upside-down reflections in the droplets – even better! I hope you enjoy this lush photoshoot!
Let’s start with a dramatically blurred photograph. My 50mm lens + a macro lens extension made for a seriously soft background.
Anyone know what this strange bug is? It’s quite bright.
Ahh, a classic picture of a grass blade heaped with raindrops. *heart eyes*
Mom planted a couple of eggplants in pots this year, which seems to be working very well. Now the plants are full of starry purple flowers – so lovely!
Isn’t this color BEAUTIFUL?
Usually I very much dislike Japanese beetles, but they do look kinda neat with my macro lens. 😉
Ahh, I love this one! The reflection is so bright; it’s like there’s a world swirling around inside a butterfly egg.
The frosted look on the onion leaves made for some neat, silvery photos.
SO. PRETTY. I love the muted colors here!
If you look close enough, you can see an upside-down reflection of a barn in at least two of those drops! So neat!
Ahh, this is one of my favorites. I like how water drops magnify the texture they cover, like the veins on this bright lettuce leaf.
Megan and I planted LOTS of wildflowers (more on that in a future post!), including these lupines. The star-shaped leaves were rimmed with drops clinging to the tiny hairs on the edges.
The sepals on this bud look kind of like fingers, don’t they? 😛
I’m the kind of person that takes pictures of hydrants and faucets because… well, that blue looks so pretty with the mint-green onion leaves! XD
We’ll end with this fresh, vibrant photo. Raindrop photography is so relaxing and refreshing, isn’t it? It is to me. ❤
I hope this photoshoot was refreshing to you too! Maybe it cooled you down a bit if it’s sweltering outside where you live now. It’s supposed to be SO hot and humid for this whole week here. Yay. -_- Heh heh, I suppose it IS summer.
Which photo was your favorite? Do you have a garden this year? Do you like photographing reflections?
Thanks so much for reading, dears, and have a lovely day!
