Drops of Sky

It had rained overnight, but the early morning showed sun and clouds with only a hint of wind.

Phyllis got the kids to school, and I stripped to my shorts and tank top, no shoes, to photograph the water drops.

These drops on a peony leaf showed the sky and clouds in their reflections. Little worlds, indeed.

I photographed the drops of the sky using my Nikon 200mm f/4 macro lens, a 36mm extension tube, and the Nikon 6T close-up filter. (Nikon has unfortunately discontinued manufacturing the 6T.) I stopped the lens down to f/36, and used manual mode to hold the shutter open for about 1/13 of a second.

Wet (from all the rain drops) and happy, I took myself and photo gear inside for a cup of coffee.
