A brief shower had come and gone, and this leaf was lying in the trail with the fresh raindrops sparkling on the surface, looking almost like little polished diamonds.

    Oops…sorry for the echo. The site was acting up, and I couldn’t tell that the first to comments actually posted. :-)

  • No problem Mike, I’m glad you persisted, it’s always nice to hear that someone liked my work. I have the same thing happen now and then, it does leave one wondering where the comment went..:>)

    Jann, I recently learned a Tibetan Buddhist term for this sort of photography: Mitsang. The word literally means “good eye,” but in this usage “good” simplly means “that our mind is uncluttered by preoccupation, relaxed and open.” Take a look at http://miksang.com/miksang.html.

    Blessings,
    Mike
