It’s going to be a rainy Easter this year. In the last 3 days, we’ve had 170mm of rain (6.7 inches) and it is forecasted to continue for the next few days. This morning, I went out in the drizzly rain with my camera to capture some droplets on my jade plant. I’ve had this plant for a very long time, it’s been through a lot, including toppling over in it’s pot whenever it gets a bit windy! I’ve moved it to a more sheltered location and put it in a sturdier pot and it is thriving.
I used my 60mm macro lens (120mm equivalent) and shot handheld at ISO200. I have kept the aperture open wide (f/2.8 to f/4.0). Consequently, I’ve set the shutter speed quite quick (1/100s or faster).
These photos are for Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic – perhaps you can visit some of the inhabitants over this long weekend 🙂
I probably won’t post very much over this long weekend, but I will check in occasionally. For those of you who celebrate Easter, i wish you a very happy one. If you don’t, I hope you have a lovely long weekend.
