i miss the sun

...I really can't remember the last time I saw it.
Miserable day today. Rain, then giant slush balls falling from the sky, then snow and now rain again. We've had this for 2 days!

I've done a shot very similar to this before...back in Nov I think. I'm posting this more for the DOFy goodness.

8 days to go in my project (i think) and there's so much more I'd like to squeeze in! Something with an orange, a vast gorgeous landscape or light painting. I better get busy!

....
No matter how poopy I feel, watching anything from this band makes me smile.
Need a smile?....here's my fav

Like that video. Especially the tank top (you probably call it a vest or something...). Pretty droplets too. I won't mention the sun we had here today but it was something I needed.

Oh I vote great sweeping landscape before day 365.

favorite. This is gorgeous. Looks like jewels

Me too I miss the sun... But I do like this pic - the symmetry of each bitty branch having a drop - although in some respects it looks a bit like the hand of an alien monster reaching out from the haze ;p

I agree, these look like jewels. I've lived in places that didn't see a lot of sun in the winter and it was rough. This is beautiful The video is great!.

Another grey crappy day in TO, wonderful shot..colour is so elusive this time of year.

@fueast yep, those are vests. Tank tops are tee's with no sleeves (aka wife beaters (gasp)) I'm jealous of your sun :)
I'll do my best to get a landscape...travel is required...stay tuned

I love these little drops they are so pretty. We have had the same lovely weather you have had. The sun came out this afternoon and it got cold cold cold.
posted January 28th, 2012  
beautiful shot. Youre right on with the DOF. I like that as much as I like the drops!

This is beautiful Jenn! We rarely have sun, especially this time of year, I actually saw it today! Everything here is so brown and gray.

I likey!

Sounds like Toronto is like Brisbane at the moment - wet and sunless - though I'm sure we are a bit warmer here. I LOVE the way you capture these things - magical.

You know in 'War Of The Worlds' when one of the tripods crashes at the end, the hatch opens and then an alien arm and hand flops out of the craft? This reminds me of that. Okay, if you don't know the film, nice droplets :)

lovely simplicity

@sabresun - I was totally thinking alien hand too!

Great shot Jenn! LOVE the transition from light to dark!

Those days can make for some lovely photos. This is quite magical.
posted January 29th, 2012  
Only 8 days wow. I can only imagine how that will feel later this year :) Considering your lighting, or lack of sun the colors in the are beautiful! And of course the DOF is stunning.

Sounds like horrible weather... We got snow last night for the first time and it actually started sticking! Have been waiting all winter for that!
posted January 29th, 2012  
Absolutely amazing. I love it! Winter should be so beautiful!

Beautiful shot. I love that music vid too, so clever how it's done in one shot!
posted January 29th, 2012  
great focus and colours here - and yes, dull and grey is miserable
posted January 29th, 2012  
Nice reflections in the droplets.

Beautiful focus on the droplets! Love the warm tones of the Dof and the subtle watermark.
