"Raindrops Keep Falling on My......."

By RonnieAG
Cut in the rain, stuck in the top of a hedge carefully so as not to dislodge the rain drops, photographed against the heavy overcast but backlit by a brighter patch of sky, and then placed in the vase alongside the blooms from my previous shot.

Details: ISO 100, 1/160 sec. at f/7.1. Viewing LARGE is worthwhile I feel, if time permits!

A big thank you to the many who voted for and commented on "Sweet Peas" 2. Your remarks are always most welcome and much appreciated.

You must have a steady hand Ronnie ? These raindrops would keep falling on my trousers if it was me.I don't think the words would sound the same in the song here !!
Good shot.

Light and colour in this are just stunning. Has to be a "plus" to it raining and it certainly does something magical to flowers when the raindrops sparkle as these do! The diagonal works so well as does the neutrally toned bg. A seriously beautiful shot!

You certainly are most ingenious when it comes to set-ups Ronnie, I enjoyed reading about that almost as much as your shot and presentation Smile

The magenta and grey are a perfect foil to each other - this is what I would describe as Essence of British Summertime...beautiful flowers, grey skies, and rain!!!

Hello my friend, hope the day is good for you.

It seems that I have run out of adjectives to decribe your work, so I am going to have to use another language closer to home to you.

"Barraichte" !!!!

Take care Ronnie.

Hi Ronnie, I do agree with Carol, this is really a glorious set of image.. Rain drops add more beauty to the image..

Who needs a studio when their's a handy hedge to stick it in? You could have moved the focus a shade forward, but this is probably hand held so I'll let you off Ronnie.


Great awards and comments on this one.
