    Wanted to shoot the tulips that had turned from yellow to orange.

    NEX-5N    E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 OSS    66mm    f/4.5    1/160s    ISO 100



    Ended up shooting raindrops in a puddle because the wind was blowing too hard to shoot flowers.

    Kinda hard to focus when you never know where the drop is going to fall.

    That's actually quite hard to do... catching the exact moment a raindrop hits the water, let alone know where to focus. First pic is beautiful!

    Thank you. Yeah, it's a study in frustration for sure, but it's fun anyway. ;)

    Even if the weather was drabby, the images are nice and vivid. Very nice contrast on the second image :)

    Thank you, this was the 0.5 seconds that the breeze wasn't blowing them all over the place.
