Raindrops ~ an Irish Blessing

May the raindrops fall lightly on your brow.

May the burdens of the day rest lightly upon you,

and may God enfold you in the mantle of His love.



We've had quite a bit of rain these past few days, but today was the first time I was able to get outside and capture a few raindrops before they were all dried up from the wind.  In fact, it was still raining lightly while I was out photographing them.  I'm a little hooked on playing with my macro filters lately.  I hope you'll indulge me for a while.  :)


It stopped raining around 4:00 but the sky was so dark already.  And then I happened to glance outside to see if any deer were in the neighbor's yard only to see a gorgeous sky of oranges, purples, and pinks.  I quickly asked Keira if she'd like to help me try to capture a silhouette.  She agreed and suggested she bring along her violin.  While this isn't exactly the photo I was hoping for, I am glad she agreed to let me practice.

Your water droplet pictures are lovely and so is your sunset picture. Is that your daughter in the picture - my daughter plays the violin also. Great idea for a picture.

Just what is it about capturing a water droplet that is so amazingly beautiful! Just one of the small wonders and beauties of the world that needs to be frozen in time to appreciate. Lovely.

Clever water droplet shots - I'm particularly taken by the rows of droplets on the strip of leaf/weed. well done with your very last picture - i think the red in the sky is wonderful and the mood with your daughter playing is quite emotive.
