Lens-Artist Challenge #146 Focusing On The Details

We had a much needed rain this morning. I love the details of the falling rain and the droplets on one of our Japanese Cherry trees.

Spring Rain on Japanese Cherry Tree

Last night was the first Wednesday Night race of the season. The skipper of Bad Dog was short two hands and a new recruit made a minor mistake so the spinnaker ended up in the water while rounding the mark.

I love the detail of the drops as they haul the jib out of the water:

  1. Too many people focus on the whole scene or broad landscape when often the most interesting shots are the details at our feet. Droplets on blossoms is the perfect example.

      1. My yard had nothing but mono culture lawn. I filled it with flowers for birds and butterflies and I planted the four cherry trees so I could lay in bed, look out my window and see birds in trees. It took 3 years before that happened and now I’m golden with birds singing in them every AM.

      2. That does sound nice and I know how good it feels seeing fresh blooms or new fruit on the plants that I grow.

        What a lovely way to wake up.

    1. Well…the top one was just walking out the front door, framing, metering, blah blah blah.
      I worked my arse off for the second shot. 🙂

    1. Eh…it’s the constant dislocation of things..ribs..ribs are driving me mad this past year..as are my feet. The pain makes me dotty, the mis-function..disfunction? of my joints interfere with all manner of things. It’s good I’m ‘full of spit and vinegar’ because I still go out and garden and sail and shoot because I won’t surrender. I’m sure you how that goes. 🙂 I hope you are well.

      1. I hear ribs can hurt a lot. Lots of nerves. I also think you are full of energy. That is what’s saving you. Sailing is amazing. An old friend of mine has a boat in Brittany. He wants to take us sailing this summer.
        We are all right thank you. keep on fighting.

      2. Haha! Still on the project stage. That friend and his wife are nearly retired, have bought the boat a couple of years ago, and plan to sail around the world as soon as the virus is under better control. They were going to sail away last july… We’ll see how it goes. (He’s been sailing for 50 years. They will be ok)
        Fair winds to you.

    1. Thank you, that means a great deal to me coming from someone I consider an artist of the pen…and pennant. I’m cracking myself up here. 🙂

  2. You capture two really nice photographs of beauty. Love the droplets on the cherry blossoms and the defeat of the race. Well done.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

  3. The dripping cherry blossoms are gorgeous with those raindrops on them. And the sailing adventure looks fun but kind of cold. Lol. The light on the water is beautiful. 🙂
