Watery Wednesday / Sugar Coated Water Drops

 Click on photo to enlarge!
The reflections on these water drops remind me of sugar...maybe I'm just hungry???
I put a red and white polka-dot towel underneath a glass plate lined with waxed paper.
I sprinkled water droplets across the plate trying to not allow them to blend together.
A little side lighting, 60mm macro lens and a long exposure created this "master-piece."
Okay...not a master-piece but, it was fun!
One idea leads to the next...more colorful background next time and a lot more water droplets!

Great! It is a mater-piece. It is worth to be on the top page of Fotblur.

That's a cool way to get your watery shots and very creative. If you do a lot more water drops next time you'll probably have to have more space or they will run together like you didn't want. Keep playing and having Phun with it.

So much fun Carolyn. I love your photo tips -- like a painless and beautiful photography class. (One might even guess that you'd been a teacher in a past life ;>))). Great job!
