Summer rain

Summer is here in all its glory.

And that, of course, includes the soft summer rain

Bringing a chill with it that makes us appreciate the sun even more.

Just as a flower is thankful for the rain,

So am I thankful for all the small beauties that surround me.

Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.
– Rabindranath Tagore

  1. Pleasing images… I’m a big fan of outdoor macro photography. You done well with yours.

    Water droplets, such as on yours, adds a lot of viewer interest to a photo.

    Much of my photography is in arid or desert environments. Dew or rain drops on desert plants is rare. Folks from my neck of the woods usually carry a water bottle with a fine mist atomizer that allows us to artificially add water droplets. 🙂

    It has the added benefit that the photographer has full control over the number and size of the water droplets on their flora subjects that you don’t normally have.

    Desert flora photographers always have their atomizer handy. We call it the flora photographer’s best friend. lol!!


  2. Breathtaking captures as always, Ladyfi! We’ve had SO much rain this year, but I’m still grateful for the beauty it brings! Not to mention, our temperatures are a lot more desirable than the incredible heat that has covered most of this country. Thanks for sharing the beauty! I love the droplets of water on the blossoms! Exquisite! Hope you have a great week!



  3. Lovely shots, Fiona. Especially the reflections in your macro raindrop. And a beautiful shot of Oscar too in your last post. I get the impression he’s happy whatever the weather. 🙂


  4. Okay, what it the universe trying to tell me… this is the third fabulous reflection in a rain drop I’ve seen in as many days! Poetry in photos… lovely!


  5. I love Tagore’s poem and words. Droplets in the last photo is exquisitely beautiful, much more beautiful than jewels. Thank you for sharing.


  6. Your photography — which was perfect to begin with — just keeps getting better and better. I too am grateful for ordinary days and the beauty of ordinary things. (I just wish I could take pictures of them half as well as you do.


  7. Ladyfi, I haven’t seen such beautiful rain drops. Your artistic sense made me speechless! I realized my vocabulary is too small to express my admiration. Amazing photos. I do love all of them.
