Droplets of Dew – closeup!


I do enjoy getting closeup photos but I can’t always photograph them the way I want to, especially as I take my photos on my iPhone.    My sister and her husband take the most amazing macro photos!

Then one day recently I was experimenting and managed to take this gorgeous shot of dew drops in the morning light.  Luckily for me I can now use this photo for this week’s photo challenge, as the theme is closeup.

Macro photography allows us to see the world in a new light. Some of the best macro subjects may appear mundane at first — things you’d normally pass by without giving a second glance — but get just a little closer and there’s often a hidden beauty to be discovered. So this week, get up close and personal with your subject — whether it’s the pollen on a newly bloomed flower, rust on an old fence, or water droplets left by a storm — and capture those tiny, fascinating details that might go unnoticed.

I love the way the world is inverted in the reflection in the dew drop, apparently there’s a scientific explanation for this. I featured a few of my other photos of dew drops in a post recently – you might like to have a look at them – Dew drops

Enjoy!
