Pristine raindrops gather on a purple and fuchsia veined clematis. I love shooting in the rain for the fact it softly blurs out the outline of objects. I spent a good deal of time thinning out my plants this summer. Now that I can finally reach the plants in my flower garden and walk around them, today is a good time to photograph the beautiful purple clematis.
I’m happy to grab an umbrella and head outside when it is raining. And, let’s just say much of the free time I have had lately it has seemed to rain. So, it might be a good thing that I have garden flowers and bugs to turn the lens on.
All plant life has a vibrant coloring just after a rain, almost as if the rains wash away any impurities.
The colors are soft and absolutely beautiful!
This Was My Favorite Shot in the Rain Today
While transferring files I needed a break from sitting and I’d run out to the yard. This was one of my favorite shots of the day, titled it pristine raindrops.
I was trying to capture the floral reflection in the droplet. It was a success. My only issue was I didn’t feel I was close enough to the flower on my first-morning venture to the yard. After viewing the photos online on the big screen in the afternoon, I went back out and focused on something different. Trying to capture my shadow and the plant to look like an eye in the raindrop. I did it! Can you see it? A magical eye in the focused raindrop.
Hope you enjoy your week!
