In this book, Harold Davis shows us what we’re missing out on with a truly comprehensive guide to capturing beautiful images of water droplets. This isn’t a guide to creating water drop images using studio-based photography; all the images featured here were taken ‘in the wild’ and this is a guide to making the most of what you discover, whether it’s dew or raindrops. All in all, this is a truly great book about an underrated subject.”

In some ways Davis images saturated with texture and enveloped in pattern seem transcendant and bathed in mysterious light. We need to remember that the desire for form is also the desire for meaning. We cannot, however, let utopian ideals cloud the reality in front of us that even though visually represented through the lens of a camera, and output by a computer onto paper, or chemically prepared and output, the real natural world remind us that design and pattern are deduced in a variety of ways, both seen and unseen.
