I took this photo the other day. The droplet(s) of water on this fallen leaf caught my attention, amongst hundreds of leaves spread out around my yard.
I took several pictures of this until I got too close, my camera hit the leaf and the droplet “burst” and poured off the leaf. I couldn’t find another such photo opportunity, no matter how hard I looked.

I call it: “Google Earth Search”

Hmmm the droplet acts as a magnifier!
Nice shot.

Thats cool.

I took this shot the day after the big ice storm that devastated New England in 2008.
With the morning sun it looked so magical.
This was at the end of my driveway.

and one to show during the storm the damage to the trees, taken with my phone.

You guys are too good for me! This shot was in yorktown, VA. Love the little tree highlighted by the reflection of the sun in the ocean.

Charlie, if I didn’t know any better, I would say you are trying to sell me your camera! Are those from your new or old one?

Martin, words fall short.

MsDebbieP – what a great thread

Debbie,

Take a spray bottle with you next time to re-mist the dropletts. An eye dropper works too. :) Problem solved.

Nice pictures all. I’d sure be interested in knowing how you get that close Debbie. I have a digital with 3 macro lenses but havn’t been successful in taking macro shots.
