Drip Drop Drippety Drip

A while ago, I posted some abstract rain drop photos that were very popular, so I thought it’s about time to show another rain drop photo; this time a more normal one.

This photo was taken in the same time frame as the other ones (we don’t get much rain in Santa Fe, so not many chances to take photos like these), but these drops have a more natural look.

It was heavily overcast when I took this photo (very unusual here), and since I didn’t have my tripod with me, I had to use a small aperture in order toΒ get a shutter speed that would allow me to get a shake free shot. That means that the depth of field (focus) became very narrow. I wasn’t sure I liked it at first, but the more I see it, the more I do. (:

Shot with my 105mm lens at f/4.2.
