Raindrops and Dew

I've always been fascinated by the beauty of water droplets on flowers and leaves so for this week, I've gone into my archives to find a few photos of such images.  


This first shot was taken earlier this summer in our garden.
These branches were photographed early one morning, after a night of rain.  I took the shot with my iPhone as I was on my way out to an appointment and by the time I returned an hour later, the water had all dried up.  Glad I had the iPhone camera at the ready!
This seed was on the beach at Wasaga late last fall.  The water remained after a heavy frost melted in the mid morning sun.

This final shot, although not really showing droplets of water, is a favourite water shot from our trip to Newfoundland in 2010.  This rocky outcropping is off the northern shore near Twillingate.  I love how you can see the curve of the earth along the horizon.  It was a bright, clear day, and the intensity of the blues were just incredible!

    1. Incredible isn't it. Obviously people back in the day didn't have cameras to disprove their theory that the world was flat. LOL. Thanks for your comment Currie.
