This week Nancy has given us an easy prompt (at least for me). Raindrops. I literally have thousands of photos of raindrops. Most of them not worthy of a second look. But I found these photos. When I have my Social Snappers group we still go out, even in the rain.
And not just raindrops on roses.
But also on leaves.
All these were taken just around the Heretaunga Womens Centre.
A Photo a Week Challenge: Raindrops
Thanks for visiting.
Good morning from a cool Hastings day.
Yesterday was the best day ever. I took my Social Snappers group to visit Stonycroft and the weather was perfect. We wandered around the outside and then had a guided tour around the house itself. I am going to volunteer for the Knowledge Bank. A photographer has donated literally thousands of photos which need to be scanned into their systems and cataloged. Right up my alley. Since I love vintage photos, this should be an honour to do this.
Then in the afternoon I drove down to Otane to set up my stall for Sunday. That means that I can leave early on Sunday and stop and take photos in the golden hour. On the way back I stopped off at the Pekapeka Wetlands. The light was beautiful as the sun was just going down behind the hills. I was the only one there and it was just perfect.
Walking around, with the right lens on, for a change, this fantail was flying around me. I was so jubilant to capture it with the tail feathers fanning out (hence it’s name – fantail). For once I didn’t need to crop or do much in the way of editing.
And then I also captured this silvereye. It is such a tiny bird and usually hides well in the bushes. It was very vocal as well. Singing to me.
All in all it was a magical afternoon spent there. (Over 1000 photos for the day).
Jubilant, adjective: showing great joy, satisfaction, or triumph; rejoicing; exultant.
This was exactly how I felt when I rushed home to upload my photos to find these.
