Or raindrops. It’s all much of a muchness.
On the whole I prefer the pansies with varied colours, but even monochromatic yellow has its charm when sprinkled with diamonds.
Two versions of the same image, one cropped more extremely, because I couldn’t decide which I liked better. I like the overall effect and compositional balance of the first one, but it didn’t show the details in the water drop as well.
…may you find diamonds all around you.
What can I say? It has been raining a lot recently.
And I can resume taking pictures of water drops on leaves.
This photo was an accident—it’s a heavily underexposed photo of a pink strawberry flower. But I liked the effect of what it did to the colours, and the rich glow of the highlights, so I decided to keep it.
Mostly I try to fight the shasta daisies back, as they’re pretty aggressive about spreading, but I do let some bloom. A bunch fell over recently, the stems apparently overcome by the weight of the flowers. Which explains why this doesn’t look very daisy-like: it was taken at an odd angle.
