Rain Drop - 雨露

Nelson, New Zealand

Nikon D200
AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm F2.8
F4.5, 1/60, ISO-100


  1. Now there's an example of Nature's beauty. Those water droplets in the center are in such fine focus, my eye is drawn to them. It looks like a tree or plant reflected in the middle drop but I can't make out your reflection or your Nikon! Hehe.

  2. Cheers, Gavin.
    When you look through the drop let, it actually act as a lens. It's tree in the distance and all the droplets show same sort of image It's a really interesting subject.

  3. I too thought there was a reflection in the drops until I read your answer.

    There are some raindrops on my rosebush but because of the cold I'm not tempted to try and emulate your shot.

  4. Thanks Ben, I've learned something from you. I hadn't realized at all, but now it makes sense that I couldn't see a reflection of you and your camera.

  5. It's so interesting. I would like to try again, any time soon. I think you all noticed the image is upside down as you see through them. It reminds some old camera, yeah?

  6. Hello, Really like this photo - I look forward to seeing more experiments like this one.
