A world in a water droplet

I guess these images are proof that something positive can come out of a wet summer!  Colin took these photos at the weekend, when the mist had created countless sparkling globes of water on the leaves of plants in the front garden.

Photography details:  

Nikon D300 with 105 mm  f4  micro lens, manual focus  1/30 sec, f.22.

    How fun!

  2. One word Mr Woolf….stunning!! Loving the droplets in 1, 3 & 4 Colin superb!!!!

  3. Isn’t nature wonderful! Colin’s photos are superb, such beautiful detail and lovely composition, it’s like seeing into a little magic kingdom, and it’s all there without us even knowing about it most of the time.

    This is one of my endlessly favorite subjects: water drops! And these are stunning, FAB photos:)

  7. Oh wow! These are positively edible.

  8. Amazing! Interesting how the water droplets in the last photo look like little seashells!

    • Yes! I see what you mean. If I understood physics I’d probably be able to explain the refraction of light through water, causing the lines to appear to radiate… Thank you for the comment!
