“Laws are like cobwebs, which may catch small flies, but let wasps and hornets break through.”
― Jonathan Swift

I actually shot today’s subject early yesterday afternoon. But I had already blogged by then and couldn’t share the amazing scene that I had found. Luck was obviously on my side, as this morning it was practically unchanged and I managed to take another series of shots – therefore still in keeping with the 365 challenge!

I’m really enjoying the macro lens – I’ve had it for some years now and never properly tried it out. Of course, I’m not using a tripod so my shots could be a lot steadier if I was, but I like the results I am getting all things considered.

The Cobweb, so fragile and so thin, held what looked to be quite an amount of heavy raindrops. Cobwebs always baffle me in that respect, so fragile yet so strong. They are extremely beautiful to photograph when you catch them at the right moments.

I used an Orange Filter to get a different hue/glow in the shot, and that seemed to work out quite well too. Then I unearthed the huge spider that had made the web. That was the end of that photography session!

Below are some of the shots taken yesterday afternoon with the macro lens…

“Each day has a colour, a smell.”

I wanted to catch the essence of today in a photograph. The weather is still grey and gloomy but the rain is a bit more sporadic giving us some respite for just a few hours which I stole a bit of to get today’s photographs. But the wind has picked up and when the breeze hits it’s a little bit of warm and a lot of cold! The plants wouldn’t stay still, naturally, and so in the end I stopped battling with them and let the blur hit. It was a painful decision to make!

However it makes a nice change from still life – capturing nature in motion. The weekend looks to be brighter and so I’m crossing everything in the hopes that the weather forecast is right! It’s been right so far in predicting our weeks of endless rain – so here’s hoping.

I just wanted to say thank you to all those following the blog, commenting, liking and so on. Each day a few more creep in and I’m grateful for the support to keep going on this challenge! Thank You. I will aim to put some variation in over the following weekend! Stand by…
