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.

NEX-5N    E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 OSS    210mm    f/6.3    1/400s    ISO 1000


and a crop
NEX-5N    E 55-210mm F4.5-6.3 OSS    210mm    f/6.3    1/400s    ISO 1000


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 :)
