Raindrops in the Garden

We get so little rain here in S CA, that it's always nice when a storm rolls through. Last Sunday night we had a cold, wet storm followed by a crisp, clear and sunny Monday morning. It was so bright that I noticed light reflecting off water drops in the garden like little jewels!


Have a great week!

  8. After the last two rainstorms we've had, each time I went out to get pictures like yours and end of getting distracted with other things like mushrooms, fungi, waterfalls, streams, etc. Nice that you are able to stay focused. Well done!

  9. Nice macros of the raindrops. It is nice that California finally got some rain to photograph but we are still way below average especially in the south.
