Day 219 (6 Aug 2012) The Morning Dew

This morning as after I awoke, I noticed that the lawn was sparkling like a field a diamonds!  I recalled the photos I took a while ago, and how pleased I was with them, so I decided right then and there to grab my camera, macro lens, and my cardboard (It keeps me dry and comfortable when shooing on the ground, esp. after last nights rain 🙂 ).  I cropped most of these to focus on the best elements of the image.

I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do!

as an FYI, I cropped most of these to focus on the best elements of the image.  I may experiment with a slightly smaller aperture on the drops next time, might get a shaper image, or more of the drop-world in focus 🙂

Day 38 (7 Feb 2012) Dawn Breaks

This morning as I was sitting at my computer enjoying some granola, I was able to enjoy the  transition of the sky from night to light; I feel really blessed to have this view from my office! the first shot is that view (but shot from outside), the second is from my front steps (looking just to the right, or south, of the first one).  It was almost a shame to disturb the moment by grabbing my camera and running outside (still in PJs), but I’ll just savor it tomorrow morning 🙂
