|Look: you can see the drips coming from the downspout.|
While I do wish rainy days could include more sunshine, I do appreciate the unique beauty that they offer. On this morning, I had headed out without my camera, planning to only do a short circuit of the park before heading back to bed to nurse my sore back.
But I was almost immediately captivated by the tiny droplet of water clinging to the tips of buds and needles. So I went back for my camera (and umbrella).
Photographing raindrops, it turns out, is a little challenging. The autofocus on the camera looks for sharp lines; water does not provide these very well.
|Can you see the raindrops I caught as they fell?|
More than once, I accidentally knocked off all the droplets in a small shower, as I leaned in close.
|Like a string of beads.|
Next challenge: try to get a slightly greater depth of field, so I capture more of the pristine droplets. (I need to learn to bracket my shots using a variety of apertures!)
Hope you enjoyed our rainy walk1
