|Hi. I took this shot while canyoning in the Blue Mountains in the summer of 2003. It was pretty hot as Australian summers go so we were happy with a rain storm that cooled our climb out of the gorge down. It was then that I spotted these water beads on the eucalyptus leaves. I tried to capture the light reflecting off the water droplets using the fill flash and was pretty happy with the results. I guess I should have tried to spend a bit more time to improve the DOF in the shot to get the second leaf a bit crisper.|
The image often reminds me of how precious water is, particularly in countries like South Africa and Australia where water restrictions are often the order of the day. It is at time like this when a brief rain shower really brings the point home.
I hope you like the shot.

Nice shot you have here, Guy. Good colours and quite sharp also. However, I think you should try some differet crop. The leaf in the foreground is distracting imho. I've tried to make your image better, hope you'll like it.
Tfs, take care,
