What comes with rain? Raindrops!

This is another follow-up post to a photo I featured earlier this week. I’m not crazy about rain. I get wet if I go outside, I don’t like driving in it, and my kids go nuts staying inside all day. But one thing I absolutely love about rain is the leftovers, specifically raindrops. I’ve featured raindrops several times on this photo blog, including raindrops on spider webs.

I think raindrops can look very pretty, especially when they hang from something in a special way. I’ve noticed that raindrops hang on very well to thuja tree branches, and so after this most recent rainstorm, which lasted almost three long days and nights, I managed to take a few photos of them, including some with my brand new Canon Powershot SX500 IS digital camera. By the way, I’ve decided to return this camera. After giving it a long try, I just can’t stand the chromatic abberations on many photos. Most images are pretty grainy too, which I find unacceptable. So I’m back to shopping around for another camera to replace by beloved old Canon Powershot, which doesn’t always want to turn on. I’d love to go for another Canon because I can navigate through the menus pretty fast, but I really don’t know at this point. Sigh.
