11.16.2019 A close look at Autumn

We’ve been experiencing frost most every morning, but on some occasions it has been a heavy dew.

    A lovely sight indeed. Much beauty in the small details, for those like you who have the eyes to see.

  2. It might have been difficult but you did your heavy dew-ty here.

    It’s interesting, the way the size and number of the droplets on either side of the primary vein differ. After I stopped admiring the beautiful color, I pondered the dew drops for a while, and decided that the left side of the leaf might have been canted downward just a bit, so that the moisture couldn’t cling as well. Or, it might have been more exposed to the breeze or the light, and the dew began evaporating there first. In any event, the difference adds a nice touch to the photo.

    • I think that it is just Nature’s randomness at work. As humans we look for certain things, like symmetry, but that’s a rare quality I’d guess. I don’t remember you and I discussing it, but I know that Steve and I have spoken of one of my favorite books, Eliot Porter’s Nature’s Chaos, and that fits here. Having said that, I like your thoughts on why the drops are where they are and their numbers and size.

  4. It’s always interesting to study the architecture all around us – the veins and ribs, and the domes formed by the bubbles. The tawny colors of this leaf are very pleasing, too.

    Lovely details. The leaf makes me think of dry parched ground welcoming rain.

    Isn’t macro fun? So many intricate details that the average eye is unaware of.

    Sometimes the simplest of images can be some of the most appealing. Really nice, Steve.


    • I agree, Todd. Usually my simplest shots are the wildflower portraits if I can separate them from the background. But other subjects looked at closely can be simple and yet complex with their detail. Thanks.
