When Nature gives you rain...

Love the DOF and clarity of the drops. Leaves are one of my passions! #168159

Thanks, Janet. Now the real story. I was on assignment for a travel magazine to do a story on fall hiking in the mountains just outside of Flagstaff, Arizona. While waiting in the VW van for a break in the rain, this leaf fell on the window - and a little voice inside me said, "Aha! now that's interesting." I had to spread the tripod out over me and the passenger seat (where I was sitting at that time), and it was quite a fight to the finish to get the tripod in position, but I knew I needed it for stability and for the depth of field that I wanted, since the windshield had a little slope to it. It was worth it in the long run. And, it rained for two days and I never got the fall hiking pictures we had hoped for. Fortunately, there was another weekend opportunity for those... #773783
