Weekly Photo Challenge: Pure…diamonds, no rust

How can it be almost the middle of June (and the half-way point of 2016) already?  Time is zipping by much too quickly. It’s also Friday again, time for the Weekly Photo Challenge.  A few mornings ago, I went on my usual walk through the park.  It was a wet morning and all the spider webs were highlighted by diamond drops of rain.  I can’t resist them and it’s pure pleasure to come upon a prairie filled with these usual unseen beauties.  This also the first of the shots from the walk I wrote about that had all of you asking for photos.  🙂  Possess your souls in patience and all will be revealed.  In the meantime, happy Friday and have a marvel-filled weekend.

  1. I’m an arachnophobe, but even I must admit there is something beautiful about the dew drops on a spiders web!

  2. Wow, so beautiful and perfect for the theme, pure! I might wait for the pingbacks to work again, but I will submit a photo next week 🙂

    • Not sure when they’ll be working, Terri. Going through the comments is much more time-consuming, but I’ll do it, at least for a time. Thanks for taking the time to stop in and also to comment. Have a great weekend.

    Stunning! Wonderful photo

  4. Radhika says:

    Wow! Beautifully framed shot! 🙂

  5. God knows I’ve tried that shot. The web is never this clear. Good job!

  6. bythebriny says:

    Lovely composition and great choice for the challenge.

  7. Sandra says:

    That looks very much like a necklace, Janet. Wonderful shot.

  8. Laura says:

    Amazing image. It look fragile and strong at the same time.

  9. Looks like you interrupted someone weaving a gown for the Fairy Queen. Gorgeous

    • The weavers went mad and did small sections all over the park. I hope to see their creation when all the pieces are sewn together! Thanks for being caught in my web today. 🙂

    It does look like a diamond necklace!

  11. Such a gorgeous image, Janet. 🙂

  12. I don’t like spiders but every time you show us a picture like this, I almost suddenly take a liking to them ha! Almost!

    • 🙂 I didn’t see many spiders. They must have all been off…doing what? They don’t go out to eat. At any rate, I’m glad I can almost get you to like them, even if you can only go as far as appreciating the beauty of their creations (or fast food restaurants.) 🙂


  13. That’s an amazing shot, Janet, even for you because yours are all great. 🙂 You captured nature at its finest.

    • Wow, Judy. Your lovely comment made my day. Thanks so much! As Eric Carmen once wrote in a song: “Sometimes you get a hula hoop, sometimes you get an Edsel.” Which you find preferable is entirely up to you, but a friend used to quote that a lot and I love it.

    So beautiful!

  15. Hammad Rais says:

    Purity at its best! This is indeed a superb capture, Janet.

  16. Simply beautiful. A great shot, Janet. Love the composition. Great choice.

    • I’m happy you like it, Lucile. I have an edit that only shows the top part of the photo and it has a different feel but is also lovely.

      Are you still hosting Photo Rehab?

      • I’m happy to hear, Janet.
        No, I’m not. It’s taking a lot of time, which I don’t have at hand now due to work. It’s been quite hectic and I’ve been sadly very absent from blogging. I’ve tried to at least post a photo once a week, mostly scheduled in advance, and when I have more time I come here to read other blogs.

      • I know you’ve been gone and I’ve missed you. But I completely understand. Real life takes first place. Just enjoy your time and do what needs to be done. We’re still here when you have time, whether just to visit or to host again.

      • Thank you for the heartwarming and considerate words, Janet. I truly miss you all and do all I can to come back here and connect with wonderful people like you.
        Blogging has been a most rewarding human experience. Thanks.

    Fantastic pic !!!!

  22. Well captured… love the background.

  23. thirdeyemom says:

    Spectacular Janet! Yes time is on high speed lately and I’ve barely had a chance to catch my breath!

  24. Clare says:

    It’s amazing how beautiful a spider’s web can be with ‘diamond drops of rain’. This is so lovely.

  25. Emilio Pasquale says:

    Great shot, Janet. It’s amazing, the beauty that is around us every day.

  26. badfish says:

    It probably takes you as long to take a walk as it does me…always stopping to photograph spiders…or doors or windows. This is a lovely shot…the rain drops are very cool!

    • It can take a very long time, that’s for sure. Periodically, I take my Nikon and just go to the park or elsewhere for a photo walk, knowing I won’t be getting any serious exercise. On other days, I resolutely walk…unless that perfect shot shows itself. 🙂


  27. Excellent composition.

  28. jules says:

  36. Prior-2001 says:

    Really wonderful take on pure – and I have never seen a web like this – nice walk indeed!

  37. Spiderwebs are always interesting subjects to take pictures of when it comes to clinging water droplets.

  38. You take awesome photos.
