Dewdrops Suspended in a Spider's Web

    Newer Older

    Large on Black recommended.

    A meadow near my house was covered in webs this morning.

    Each dewdrop acts as a lens, with the image inverted. In each droplet you can see the sun rising above a wood.

    Cropped from 3648x2736 to 1502x1007.

      Brilliant shot John. Your focusing is pin-point - I can even see dewdrops reflected within other dewdrops... Wonderful!

      Exquisite. Like a necklace of diamonds, but perhaps more precious. This brief, bright beauty would have ceased to exist in a few breaths without you and your camera. Thank you for saving it and for sharing it.
