Water Droplets


At the end of a wet work day, I thought I’d poke around in the riverbed next to the office building for a little bit to see if there was anything to photograph. I found a small collection of water droplets on a leaf. I don’t have a macro lens, or much experience with macro photography at all, so I snagged this with my 50mm f/1.8.

Nach ein nassen Arbeitstag, erforschte ich das Flussbett neben dem Amt für Fotomöglichkeiten. Ich entdeckte ein Sammeln von Wasser-Tröpfchen auf ein Blatt. Ich habe eine Makroobjektiv nicht, und habe ich keine Erfahrung mit Makrofotografie, also ich es mit meine 50mm f/1.8 Objektiv fotografierte.

    These pictures look great. The water droplet pictures are great opportunities because you see those little bits of refraction in the droplet.

    I don’t have a macro lens either and I don’t plan on getting one. I use an 18-200mm telephoto zoom for all of my macro photos on bugs and flowers.

        Thank you Matt. I think the macro shots of the bugs are more a function of patience and being where the bugs are! And sometimes the bugs just don’t cooperate!

      I’m not sure I want to give you guys all of our wet weather, but I certainly know you can use it! :/

      Thanks, Jessica! 🙂

        I didn’t mean *all* of it… Just something to get us started! 😛 I read an article today that said California has a 12 trillion gallon water deficit and that it would take three years of above average rainfall to make it up. Sounds like we’re going to be stuck in this drought for a while. :/

            I’m not surprised. California would have landslides galore if we got that much water at once. That much water wouldn’t do *anyone* any good, even in a drought!

            As I imagine it’s not doing them any favors. It’s been three years since the Waldo Canyon Fire here in Colorado Springs, and I think they still get landslides when it rains heavily.

      Ja! Es freue mich, dass du es magst.

      Danke! Ich denke, dass sie bessere Bilder als ich dachte sein müssen! 🙂
