Macro Explorations {Raindrop Photography}

Hello, dears!

Ahh, guys, I’m so excited for this post because I have to say – this is my favorite nature photoshoot I’ve done in quite a while! πŸ˜€ If you’re a regular reader around here, you know that raindrop photography is a recurring theme with me, heh. If you’re new, hopefully the reason why will be clear after you read the post. πŸ˜‰ I don’t think I’ll ever not be amazed at the perfect little jewels that literally coat the ground after a rain.

Macro photography isn’t really going to change your life or anything, but maybe it can remind you that there’s beauty and wonder everywhere, even in the rain, even when the big picture looks a lot like a sopping wet backyard in winter. You know? πŸ™‚ It does for me.

Anyway. Let’s get into it!

After the Rain: Garden Photography

Hello, dears!

These kinds of posts are some of my favorite to make, as you might know if you’ve been around here a while. πŸ˜‰ Today I have a bunch of pretty nature photography for you, including butterflies, flowers, and raindrops found in our garden.

I took these photos the day after a glorious, answer-to-prayer rain finally came to end a summer drought. When you’re a farmer whose main key to success (the right weather) is totally out of your control, it teaches you dependence on God like nothing else, and also makes you so excited about rain that you’re riveted to the window, the weather app, and the rain gauge like they’re the most suspenseful movie ever. πŸ˜›

Everything was so beautiful and fresh the next day that I kinda just dropped everything and took a bunch of pictures. XD I hope you enjoy the results!

Macro Raindrops

Hello, dears!

A couple of days ago I ventured out into the miserably cold and rainy weather to take some pictures for you guys. It wasn’t very comfortable, but the results were worth it! πŸ˜› I mainly used my macro lens extension tubes to get lovely close-ups of the jewel-like raindrops that coated everything like frost.

If you’re in need of some spring-y, fresh green in the middle of a dull winter, read on! πŸ˜€
