Many of you know that I love to take photos of raindrops and dewdrops. These are two of my favorite “drop shots.”  The second week of Sally’s D’s Mobile Photography Challenge features macro photography.  Feel free to join in if you take photos with a “non-camera” camera.

    I love drop shots – these are beautiful Janet.

  2. Janet, they are great subjects for macro week. They also are challenging, but you’ve created two engaging captures, each having a sense of that free fall of droplets. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • Good morning and happy Monday, Sally. I love the shots where the water appears ready to drop at any instant and I’ve missed some shots where they’ve dropped while I was getting ready for the shot. 🙂

  3. Exquisite. I’d be impressed if your photos were from a high powered camera, but a phone? I don’t know how you do it. Maybe my monkey-self can’t hold that still! LOL.
    Really. You’re remarkable. Eye and hand.

    • Phone cameras are amazing, Janet. I’ve had to take photos over and over to get what I want and sometimes I never get it. Sometimes I get home where I can see the photos on a larger screen and find they’re just out of focus. 🙂 I hear the 6 and 6s have even better cameras, but my budget won’t allow for a new camera right away again (and my thrifty nature.)

    You had me at water drops – GORGEOUS captures! 🙂

  5. I. Greenwald says:

    Absolutely wonderful photos. I can’t decide which I like better, so they are both equal 🙂 I love how I can see the big drops and also the tiny little drops.

  6. Angeline M says:

    They’re both gorgeous photos, Janet. It’s intriguing to look at the drops and see reflection in some and abstract images in others. Lovely!

  7. Mary Slow says:

    Love both, and really like the line in the second one!

  8. Allan G. Smorra says:

    I like the fine droplets on the green background of the first photo. We got a light rain for a few hours today and it felt like your photos look.

    The second image is my fav for sure – I was looking at the nice clarity in the first shot – and when I scrolled to the second – the twist and energy was a nice follow – I like the term drop shots – and so many little reflections/refractions 💦💦

  10. OMG, Janet, what amazing photography!! I’m working on getting a camera with a macro lens. Just love these techniques!

  11. Fabulous rain drops. Pretty amazing for a smart phone any special app?

    Gorgeous Janet! 🙂 We haven’t had hardly any rain in months and it is hopefully coming our way today.

  13. Fantastic droplets, Janet. It is a skilled capture and the composition is very good.
