Oh, thank you everyone, you are kind. You would have laughed if you had seen me on my knees before 6 this morning in the park on the way to work! Having spotted the cobweb I had to have a try, some of the water drops were frozen at that point.
I came back after work and got this shot! The ducks were a bit put out cos they had to move!

16 Mar, 2012

 

thanks holly and pimpernel, I wasnt sure which way round to show it to be honest, its part of a whole web but this bit was in focus the best.

16 Mar, 2012

 

brill pic

The strength of the spider silk is incredible and those drops held in spheres due to the surface tension and gravity.

16 Mar, 2012

 

nature is amazing isnt it

16 Mar, 2012

 

Absolutely

16 Mar, 2012

 

It makes me smile

16 Mar, 2012

 

Since joining GoY I have found myself looking at everything and finding something to smile at daily.

16 Mar, 2012

 

Thanks pauls garden,
Thats a very positive outlook pimms, I don't manage that everyday but it does happen sometimes. Blue sky seems to help!

16 Mar, 2012

17 Mar, 2012

 

Now you're just showing off ;-)

17 Mar, 2012

 

Thank you gattina, DD and Linda,
BA I don't have any diamonds really, you would have laughed seeing me crawling round trying to get a photo.

Pimms I'm off to find that photo now Janey takes lovely photos.

17 Mar, 2012

 

Brilliant shot what camera are you using?:)

17 Mar, 2012

 

It's a canon powershot G10, not an SLR but small enough to carry easily! Thanks nana.

17 Mar, 2012

 

Wow your photos come out really well might have to look at changing my camera soon will have a look at yours .... sorry for my ignorance but what does SLR mean??

17 Mar, 2012

 

oh sorry, it means single lens reflex ~ they tend to be a bit bigger and more complicated ~ i think it means you look at the image you are taking as opposed to having a viewing window to see what shot you are taking. SLR is the best you can have but mine and lots of others now are making cameras that take nice pictures but are not so complicated.

17 Mar, 2012

 

not only have you got a very nice pic of dewdrops you have also captured the planets perfectly, with all thier orbiting moons ; )

17 Mar, 2012

 

Lovely photo, Sticki, magical :)

17 Mar, 2012

 

Oh, that's a nice thought Stevie, thank you! If all the planets are alined is that a good omen?

Thanks Gee, it's cropped from a bigger picture, it was hard to see what was in focus.

18 Mar, 2012

 

That's just amazing!

19 Mar, 2012

 

i like cobwebs nariz, i find them fascinating, does that excuse me from the dusting do you think?

19 Mar, 2012

 

Um .......... Nah! Cobwebs inside - bad; cobwebs outside - good. Get that feather duster going!

19 Mar, 2012

 

Amazing and beautiful photo!

19 Mar, 2012

 

Absolutely amazing!! Is it a camera trick?

21 Mar, 2012

 

Top drawer photograph sticki, well done.

21 Mar, 2012

 

This is wonderful Sticki, they remind me of marbles with
little green flashes inside.....lovely!

21 Mar, 2012

 

Oh dear what a shame nariz.
Thank you maezy, Costas no it's not a trick, just part of a cobweb with raindrops on.
Treetop and Janey you are very kind, thank you.

21 Mar, 2012

 

That is simply stunning, Sticki! Did you ever consider photography as a profession ? If not, why not??? Your photos are inspirational. I once read a collection of stories by Joan Aitken, entitled- 'A Necklace Of Raindrops' - and that is what your fabulous photo brings to mind for me. Nature beats us hands down when it comes to design!

11 Apr, 2012

 

oh tuesdaybear you are kind.

i like the sound of those stories and i certainly agree about nature being so very good at design!

11 Apr, 2012

 

I agree with bear..you are a brilliant photographer! :)

12 Apr, 2012

 

no, just like clicking and sometimes i like the picture that comes back, i take so many surely one of them has to work?
but thank you pixi

12 Apr, 2012

 

We can't all be wrong sticki...you take stunning pictures. it is a pleasure to see them.

12 Apr, 2012

 

this one is heavily cropped; you are all very complimentary, more than i deserve but thank you i do appreciate your kind comments.

12 Apr, 2012

 

I shall come and pick your brains!

12 Apr, 2012

 

how long have you got gattina? it will take you a long time to find anything

12 Apr, 2012

 

I. AM. VERY. PATIENT.

12 Apr, 2012

12 Apr, 2012

12 Apr, 2012

 

Rubbish!!!!! (Not you, Pixi, Dear)

12 Apr, 2012

12 Apr, 2012
