WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: #1 “Focus on Raindrops”

Weekly Photo Challenge – Focus!

I have always been fascinated by macro photography since my daughter was very young and we used to crawl around the local woods looking for fungus to snap. A heavy SLR camera fitted with extension rings plus a tripod was dragged through autumn leaves and mud. Nowadays a digital point-and-shoot makes things a lot easier, but finding good subject matter and blurring the background while sharpening the foreground on something the size of a pinhead is still a challenge. Here’s a couple of recent successes in our local woods with raindrops as inspiration.
