Still playing

After Matt's practice DofE expedition, he returned home last night tired, hungry and quite grubby!  However, a good nights sleep, and although his blisters were obviously painful, he was off to school this morning.  It never ceases to amaze me how quickly kids rebound.

Although it has been warm today, it hasn't been wall to wall sunshine by any means.  In fact this morning was distinctly gloomy.  However, I had a few minutes to play with my camera, before work.  As it had rained over night, I was determined to try and take some photos of the water droplets on leaves.  I love the way the alchemilla mollis holds individual drops of water, and they sparkle on a sunny morning.

Here are my attempts to show this:

I know they are all fairly similar - but I was having fun!

    1. Thank you! Drizzle and wind today - not great photography weather. Never mind - I might even finish a crochet project!

  2. Very nice, you've captured the lush green really well. I always find things liquid or reflective hard to capture - water droplets would be a good study. x

    1. Thank you! I'd really like some nice warm, bright, calm weather to go for a walk and take some photos. Not looking good for this weekend. x
