The colors in water have always amazed me. It is not always the color of the sky, water takes on colors from what ever is nearby. One time I got the sun dancing thru a creek, with wonderful gold and yellows.

night rain

After a hot day in Colorado, we had a nice steady rain last night (some got hail - I'm glad I didn't) Above is an azalea I shot in Oregon earlier in the spring that turned into a kaleidoscopic star. Water on plants has always fascinated photographers. I saw a picture this weekend that had a flower bud with a big water drop that had a complete mountain scene upside down in the droplet.
It was neat!

Ice to cool us down

Icicles make me feel cooler. We are having a mini-heatwave, here. The picture was taken in March - so I'm hoping that some of the cool air is circulating somewhere near!! I love the star patterns created and the upside down stars receding into the center, all from an ordinary photo.

rain and sunshine to come

Colorado has had a long rainy spring, which is about to end. We are supposed to be in the nineties this week. The wildflowers have been plentiful. This columbine has a drop of rainwater on the white petal. The kaleidoscope process makes it look almost as if it is a cross section of the flower. In reality it was a side view. Enjoy! Get out in nature. See what you can see!
