I was a newly beginner in photography when I took this photograph; I was walking home from school feeling rather exhausted, when I walked past a flower bush with hundreds of droplets formed on a spiderweb. Without even a hesitation, I ran home and grabbed my camera, I ran back... it was still slightly raining, but all I wanted was that shot of the droplets. The frailty of the droplets were so amazing. I accidentally knocked them in my excitement, and they formed huge droplets.
What a day
Thank you for the positive feedback you have shown me in looking, commenting or faving this photo. Your support means a lot because this photo is very special to me.
I think spiderwebs look less scary when it rains, somehow the light reflecting off the droplets adds a kind of magical beauty. I haven't seen any webs this beautiful for a long time, I'm still hoping to find one.
Possibly it's all about timing, spotting them before they break and look a little sad. I'd keep looking though, one day it will pay off. I'm always keeping my eye out for a good web, I think it's the child in me that wont give up!
I didn't use any macro lens, this photograph was taken with a tiny IXUS 70. It was the first camera I ever used, so you can see this photograph is particularly special to me. It's amazing what you can capture if you have the passion/patience for a unique photograph. Thank you.
