I'm kind of behind in getting some summer photos posted but I figure better late than never. A couple weeks ago we had a nice gentle sprinkle that lasted about an hour. It was so gentle that it took awhile for the long needles of the Ponderosa Pines to begin accumulating droplets. So gentle was the rain that the droplets clung to the needle tips for a long time without dripping. I had a fun time trying to capture this beautiful sight. Here are some of my best attempts. They turned out better than I expected, but still, a macro lens is what would work best for this kind of photography.
