  1. Beautiful photo. That’s an amazing picture to get with your phone. Have a lovely weekend! 🙂

  2. Very nice. You’re right; the 3-D effect is awesome!

    • Glad you like it! I took a macro shot, but it wasn’t as cool as this one.

  3. Nice! And it looks good in your header.

  4. I always love pics w/water droplets, and this is no exception! I am now off to wade through my own water-bespeckled grass- time to mow! =)

    • That pesky grass just loves to grow when water is involved.

  5. I love it! I’m probably getting on everyone’s nerves with my Instagram filters on all the photos I post online now. I just think filters are so cool–and I’m far from being a talented photographer like you are.


    • I love Instagram, though I typically use it for family-related pictures. If you look at my profile, you’ll see my children’s faces plastered across the screen. 🙂

  6. Fantastic pic! Wonderful detail and three-D effect!

  7. Let’s hear it for the drama filter. Very nice. May the 4th be with you!

    • Drats, a day late in responding. I had wanted to say May the 4th be with you too!

  8. You’re amazing. You could make your own stock business!

  9. Wow, what a photo. I’ve taken a few in my yard after rain, but you’ve captured the rain far better. What do you mean with a filter on your phone? I’m a point a click camera person, so don’t know much about taking artistic photo’s.

    Right you are about no option for email, thankfully. I never email someone instead of hoping back to their blog, reading and commenting. Was in a blog challenge last year, that all people did was email someone after they got a blog visit. Seemed truly one sided to me, blog A get’s a visit, and a comment…thus blog traffic and in return they get an email…no blog visit, no comment, no blog traffic. The challenge group actually had a discussion about the topic and those emailing instead of blogging back said it’s much faster and easier; but to me it defeats the purpose. Just thought I’d pop back and respond.

    • I like to play with a software called Snapseed, which is an app on my phone. It has fun filters you can apply, and in this instance, I used the drama filter before uploading it.

      The email mention was mostly in relation to Gravatar. I hadn’t known people actually email replied instead!

  10. Amazing! I just started doing weekly photo challenge on a new blog as a way to keep pushing myself to do more with photography.

    • I’ve liked what photos I’ve seen of yours. I’m going to have to keep an eye out for this new blog of yours.

  11. This.is.awesome. How did you do it?!?!

    I need some raindrop love on my phone!

    • Hehe, it was one of those settings that I just happened to have my phone on me to take the picture. Luck really.

  12. That is stunning. Wow.

    (What’s a drama filter?)

    • Thanks!

      Drama is Snapseed’s name for the effect.

      Drama creates a different and tailored effect based on each image and can range from a subtle enhancement of textures and details to an over processed effect that mimics the look of HDR images.

      It’s fun to play with. 😀

  13. What an amazing image! Is Snapseed only available on iphones, or can you get it on android too? Just asking, because I’m not lucky enough to have an iphone. 🙂

    • Actually, I don’t have an iPhone. I have a Samsung Galaxy S3. Snapseed is actually a Google owned app, so yep! It’s on android!
