Taking photos after the rain

Taking photos after the rain

We had a very thundery and rainy night the other night here in Melbourne, Victoria. As we are a dry country any rain, unless it turns into a flood, is welcome. The creeks near my place were flooding. We had more rain in one night that we usually do in a month so it was exciting. At dawn I decided to see if I could get any photos of drops on trees and plants. They were difficult to take because of the low light and it was still raining. I still don’t have my macro lens yet. It is on its way. The one I bought by the way was the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens for Canon SLR Cameras It came highly recommended. I saw a photo taken with it and had to have that lens. I knew I had to upgrade with the gear. So much more was possible.

I’ve had to edit the photo above so it fits on the blog. This photo is copyright to Tanya Puntii at http://www.slrphotographyguide.com

The photo I took without the macro lens is here.
