It was a beautiful sunny day, just perfect for taking photos of dewdrops and as seen in the photo, there were thousands glistening in the sun. Decided to play with my WB to find I really like the blue tint.

As always your votes and comments on previous photos are very much appreciated and encouraging so thank you

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and looking forward to the exciting changes the New Year is bringing. I'm actually going on a 2 day holiday - my first in 15 years so I am so excited - definitely a new way to bring in the New Year and to make thing more exciting my girls bought my me a ND Grad filter for my birthday so I am going to be playing for those two days we're away whooo hooo!

Really lovely and very thought-provoking! I love the blue tones, too. Personally, I would have cloned out the bottom right and top left distractions - see what you think!

completely over-whelmed with the comments and votes for this image - Thank you everyone so much for taking the time to not just look but vote and comment - I loved the comments. I love macro photography because it opens my eyes to this amazing planet that most people do not see - as Ivor pointed out. Yes Scrimmy, playing is not just fun but very worthwhile. Zazzycat, I think I understand what you're saying - the bottom of the photo didn't need to be kept. Peter, you were the first to comment so thank you for your wonderful comment.

I am fascinated with the world of dewdrops - each one different - each one special

Again Thank You Everyone

with gratitude
AVA
