After the rains

DSCF2736

Good morning from another grey day here in Hastings.

Over the past couple of days we have had some heavy rains and the poor plants got a bit of a hammering.  Yesterday when there was a break in the rain I went out to see what photos I could take.  It was still very overcast so it was hard exposure wise to get a good depth of focus on what I  really wanted.  I am fascinated with rain drops and the little images that could be seen on  them, upside down of course.  I know to get some really awesome photos there is a special lens as I have seen photos done that are just amazing and incredible but I think I have managed to get some small images in the raindrops on these lilies.

There was a lot of great shots to take and it was a matter of where to start.  In the end I didn’t take that many as it was starting to rain again.

Because it was overcast the images are rather muted and very soft.  Next time I will try when the sun is out fully and then I can really have some fun.

Anyway all the best for Emirates Team New Zealand.  We are all behind you.

Cheers and have a nice day.
