Webs Of Dew
These are spider web shots are are really tough to come by here where I live in New Mexico. Mostly because we don't get heavy dew like they do in Northern California along the coastline. This was worth stopping the car for, throwing it in reverse to capture nature's finest weavers. Mind you, I do have a fear of spiders, but none were readily seen on these dew-laden webs (perhaps they stepped out for a bit to wait for the sun to dry up the dew?). If you look closely at the dew drops, you will see shadows within them.
My dear friend and fellow travel companion/photographer, Linda Laitner, was stealthy and took a picture of me taking a picture. We both wear gear that is conducive to getting down on the ground to shoot because, let's face it, sometimes you just have to or you don't get the shot. It's odd to see what I look like when totally immersed in doing something I love to do.
And, not far from the webs of dew was the Pacific ocean-teeming with life and activity. I caught the shadow of a cormorant as it flew over the flotsam and jetsam.
Join us as a group of us (yes-there are many of us!) from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted!
