Thursday morning, I was running out the back door to my car because I was late for work, when I stopped dead in my tracks - are those raindrops on the budding bush? I went back inside, grabbed my macro lens and then was 30 minutes late for work.
I'm so thankful that my job has a flexible schedule. I just couldn't resist spending some time with my camera, the bush in my backyard and the amazing drops of water covering the buds.
I love that my macro lens allows me to see things that I struggle to see with my own eyes. I also love that it forces me to take pictures differently and know my camera better.
It was very dark that morning - that sun hadn't quite come up yet and it was very cloudy, but I knew if I wanted to take photos that droplets would be gone by the time I got home.
Look at the way water just hangs on. It's simply amazing.
It was totally worth working a later than normal to have 15 minutes to capture a small piece of God's creation.
This one is my favorite. I love the detail. Isn't it amazing to see those perfectly round droplets of water? I mean, c'mon. How cool is that? I think I may need to frame this one.
