I was searching for abstract patterns on leaves in Hopeland Gardens when I noticed an incredible amount of water drops on a spider web.  The concentration of drops wasn’t very big, but feels larger than it was thanks to composing at two times life-size.  I like the variety of shapes and sizes (especially the tiny drops – some of which are just barely larger than the web they’re on).  With the rising sun up far enough to break over the trees, the scene was well lit.  I love all of the sunstars that were created from shooting at a high F-stop and the rainbow of colors on the web strands.
