Another reach into the Denham Photography archives for today's post. One evening back in the spring, right after a good little rain shower, I took out into my front yard to take some pics of my wife's colorful flowers. I caught several nice photos of those flowers which she has used to decorate our bedroom.
On this very same afternoon that I also achieved the shot for one of my very first posts, STICKING OUT IN A CROWD, I lucked into this one.
This is the edge of a leaf on one of the Maple trees in my front yard. The sun was out right after the rain shower and this little drop of rain clinging on this leaf was screaming to be photographed. With my macro attachment mounted on my lens I was able to get extremely close. With it being a macro, even at f/8 the background was completely blurred. This also allowed for a small sunburst on the upper part of the rain drop.
