One new photograph, almost every day of the year

2016—Leaf Drops

I have become obsessed again with water drops—and trying to photograph splashes.  In the meantime, while I figure out how to photograph a drop-on-drop splash, which, by the way I may never manage to do, I thought I’d play with water drops on leaves using my speed light at various angles with a gel on it to warm the light.  I was outside on my patio and it was late afternoon.  I took these photographs when the sun was very low in the sky so I like to think these drops look more like they’re catching the last rays of sun just before it dips out of sight rather than lit with flash.
