52 Photos Project: Water Droplets

This week's theme for
is water drops.

Plenty of those falling
 out of the sky right now. 
They beat a soft snare drum sound 
all night on the skylight in my bathroom.
Somehow, those water drops 
seem most suited for soaking into the garden
than capturing with my camera.
I'll bless them, of course,
but leave them to do their job.

Which is to create shots like this one.

I got up early one morning 
when the sun had broken through the clouds,
remnants of the previous night's showers,
and went out
camera in hand
to meditate through the view finder.

Looking up
looking down
there was magic
all around me.

How pretty those are! The variation in color is nicely enhanced by the raindrops. Great capture!

It has been raining a lot here, as well, but the flowers aren't cooperating near me right now. Soon! I love close-up work. THank you for the lovely purple reverie.

Beautiful pastels - and you captured the raindrops perfectly.

There's not much more beautiful than the combination of flowers and rain drops! Perfect.
