How can it be the end of the first month of 2015 already?  Yet here we are, participating in the last Weekly Photo Challenge of January.  The theme this week is “Depth.”  I love the depth seen in the drop of rain in the photo I’m sharing and of course, that meant adjusting the depth of field as well.  I hope your January has been wonderful and that February is even better.


  1. that’s a masterpiece, I wish I can take such a photo once too. :o)

  2. Fantastic photo. Kudos.

  3. Janet, this is incredible. Such depth. Kind of reminds me of a snow globe.

  4. suej says:

    Love it! I have a similar dewdrop on a magnolia taken quite a few years ago, and not as sharp!!

  5. vernette says:

    Really clever take on today’s prompt! I think this is my favourite photo today!

  6. Norm 2.0 says:

    I love this. The details captured in the reflection just draw the eye in. Nicely done 🙂

  7. Andy Townend says:

    Janet, this is stunning, a world in a drop of water!

  8. Fab capture, such an interesting way of showing a scene, through the finest reflection in the water, good find!

  9. Oh my!! What an amazing photo. A great reflection of the world beneath. Just AWESOME!!

  10. billgncs says:

    you should submit that shot to a contest !

  11. Norma says:

    That’s a…wow! photo for sure, Janet. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  12. Sandra says:

    Fantastic photo Janet. Well done. (Not on the grid again!)

    • Thanks a lot, Sandra. I’m frustrated right now by people who don’t tag their entries “Weekly Photo Challenge” and then the entry won’t come up in the reader. If I include “Depth”, I get all sorts of other posts as well. Sigh.

      Happy travels!

  51. Mary says:

    Very nice. I took a bunch of shots like that today, after our big rain.

  52. Brother Dave says:

    Nice work!

    I was considering the purchase of a nice digital camera, but now I may invest in a new cell phone with a good camera function.

    Thank you for the post.

    • Dave, both a digital camera and a phone with a good camera are useful, but I find for me at this time, the phone camera is better as I can carry it with me all the time and get lots more shots that way. I have a digital, but only take it out occasionally. Thanks for your visit and comment and all the best with your choice.

    Heck, you had lots of friends back then! Sorry I wasn’t one of them. Sad how we lose people along the way though, isn’t it? 😦

    • The photo challenge gets lots of views, Jo, but lots of those people aren’t “friends”, just visitors, which is fine, too. Even most people who follow the blog rarely check in. That’s why I value those of you who do so highly. It’s never too late for a new friend. And yes, there are too many who’ve disappeared.
