Another morning when we awoke to a glistening world. The storm clouds had blown east over the mountain by the time I let the dog out at 6:15 a.m., but she still stood on the porch gazing out into the wet grass rather than jumping off enthusiastically. I never really thought much about rain before I purchased my macro lens. Now, when I wake up to a rainy morning my first thought is to take a stroll around the yard with my camera before it all evaporates. I know I have a lot to learn when it comes to macro, but I’ve certainly enjoyed experimenting this year and seeing the world in a whole new light (or lack of it).
