Colour and light through droplets

I'm continually fascinated by droplets of water on plants - particularly after rain.

In NZ Fiona and I sat having a coffee from a van-shack in what literally was a vacant block - the reward was good coffee and  water droplets on some nearby plants.

This morning I walked on the mountain - the theme of droplets and the reflected colours and light was further explored - we had a storm yesterday afternoon and rain over night. I'll start and end with a rose in our front yard.

And this is what the valley looked like as I took off for my walk.

Funny how the small things can entertain one.


  1. The droplets are stunning, aren't they? Seems there's a whole world in each one. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Such magic in a rain drop, Barry. Beautiful photos.
