I thought I’d use this challenge as an opportunity to share a few photos I took earlier this week after we welcomed some rain in San Diego. I wanted to photograph the raindrops and although there isn’t much colorful to reflect in the garden at this time of year, I had fun finding reflections of the other plants, as well as the iron fence behind the flower wall. These pink flowers are actually snapdragons I planted a few weeks ago.
Raindrops have such an amazing way of capturing the light and reflecting it.
This next image makes me think of a frog staring at me with big eyes on the top of its head!
I love how the straight iron fence becomes so curvy when it is reflected in the raindrops.
Today I’m participating in Jakesprinter’s Sunday Post photo challenge. This week’s theme is Concept. It took me a while to figure out what type of photos I’d use for this challenge. But then, the idea simply showed itself to me. Yesterday morning, I took a look outside in my garden after I got downstairs and this is what I saw: very tight spider webs covered with the cold morning dew in about a dozen spots on my artificial turf.
Remember you can click on each image to view a larger view of these spider webs covered with tiny rain drops.
What’s interesting is, until that morning, we didn’t know the spider webs were there. The dew made them appear. Now you see it, now you don’t. What a concept!
Here’s what a spider web with tiny raindrops look like from up close.
Here’s another photo that shows you how well and tight the spider web was built.
I like the concept of mixing two natural elements, in this case a spider web and dew drops, to create an interesting subject. I also like the photographic concept of close-ups, so here are a few photos showing the tiny raindrops on these spider webs even better.
I hope you enjoyed these photos. Would you have guessed I can’t stand spiders? They really gross me out but they can create some masterpieces if you look closely.
