After the Rain

We got some rain showers this past weekend, and when it finally stopped I ventured outside with my camera to see what I could find. I feel like I've pointed my camera at every last twig and tree in my back yard multiple times...I'm always amazed that I can find one more new thing to take a picture of! This is my submission for The Creative Exchange (button below).

  1. Wow, I really like how those leaves are caught in the simple, yet so interesting. And I think your 3rd photo is beautiful with that crystal clear clarity (how's THAT for alliteration! haha) and that soft DOF....gorgeous.

  2. I love the raindrops on the leaf....Beautiful pictures..

  3. Winter makes you reach deep for those photos, doesn't it? I think you did very well with these, Sherri. :)

  4. Great depth of field on these and a neat "catch" of the leaf on the wire. Also like how you have captured the water droplets. Very nice!

  5. I love these Sherrie, especially the third one. Such a wonderful focal point and depth of field.
    I know how you feel about every last twig in the yard. I was just thinking the same thing this weekend!

    Thank you so very much for sharing with us today at The Creative Exchange.

    Have a wonderful evening!


  6. WOW!! VERY beautifully done Sherri! Gorgeous d.o.f. and great artistic captures with the fence wire.

  7. Great detail and clarity. Love how the leaf has intertwined itself with the fence in the first pic. I appreciate your appreciation of nature. Did I just say "appreciate your appreciation?"

  8. Very nice macro shots.

    Regards and best wishes

  9. gorgeous - I especially like that first shot!
