A couple of photos....

You've got to love how beautiful everything looks after rain. Everything is washed clean and colours seem to be more vibrant. I love the way raindrops make even the most mundane plant transform to a bejewelled beauty.

We have had some beautiful light but steady rain here overnight and this morning and I couldn't resist the temptation to try and capture some of nature's finest work. I was a bit limited with what I could photograph as it is still raining, so these shots were taken from the safety of our awning. I had fun playing around with some of my macro filters.

Maybe I should invest in one of those Japanese hats with an umbrella attached so I can venture further afield in the rain!

Here are some of my shots....


  1. Stnning photos Sue. I love the second to bottom one where the raindrop is just hanging there, about to fall.

  2. Great phots, love the close up details and reflecting light
