Droplets at Dusk; Water and Light
So yes...I have taken and posted pictures similar to these before (I really like to capture water in motion); click here for previous pics. But I'm jumping ahead. This evening, before I headed off to work it was raining and already dusk...some of the darkest days of the year at present. But it struck me how it was raining and not snowing in December. And as I stood there straddling my bike about to leave, I also marveled at the fact that I still had food growing in my front yard; mainly two Brussels sprouts plants. And as I looked at them and rain poured down, water cascaded across their leaves. It looked incredibly beautiful to me, so I snapped a few photos. What is different about these photos is that it was dusk and my camera was telling me there was not enough light to capture the image. So I turned on the flash. Interesting, I thought, for close range shots. Anyhow, I thought I'd share a few.
