I'm not in the studio the last few days because I've spent most of the last couple of days bopping around the blogiverse visiting folks who are participating in the One World - One Heart Blogger's Open House. (See the post below or click on the button in the sidebar) Lots of fun but very time consuming. I was expecting to know a lot of the bloggers and while I do know some, I'm surprised at how many new bloggers (or new to me bloggers) I am meeting. I'm doing more than zipping in and out, I'm trying to get a feel for those blogs that look interesting, so I'm traveling very slowly. This could make it hard for me to get anything done in "the real world" for the next couple of weeks!
It's been rainy and gray lately. I went out to the library today and noticed the snow level was only about 50 - 100 feet up the hillsides, real close. I'm glad it's rain and not snow on the valley floor though. I'm digging it. It's hot tea, warm cuddly sweater, good book weather.
But I did brave the wet for a few minutes today. I'm fascinated with the sparkling raindrops clinging to branches outside my window. I think I needed to go in search of better choices to get any truly amazing images, but I did like the ones I shot. Check this one above out in a larger size (click on it). See the branches in the background duplicated in their entirety and upside down in the left rain drop? Talk about catching lines in a photo!
Here's another one - an entire branch encased in a single drop on a single needle.
This raindrop doesn't hold anything identifiable but I liked the photo because the branch tip reminds me of a paw holding a bubble of water. A tree paw.
