Nothing whatsoever was done to enhance the rain drops. They are the REAL DEAL :)

Captured an ultra macro of a long leaf in our backyard this early evening, covered with a generous helping of enormous raindrops that decided to stick around after an all-day downpour.
To me, this resembles nature’s version of that popular childhood fun-in-the-sun summer game, the awesome slip n slide!!! The leaf is the slide, the rain drops are the delighted kids!

Shot in natural light, some minor post editing. No crop.

The world is full of magical photo ops…

All you need to grab them is a zest for life, an eye for the extraordinary and that trusty camera of your choice.

Raise the sturdy weight of it to your face … close one eye then … lower your finger upon the shiny black button… hold your breath then… hear that hypnotic click and suddenly, dynamite explodes! the stars collide! and maybe, just maybe you’ve captured a magnificent moment in time… How thrilling is that?!?
