The weather outside is frightful…


…but the fire is so delightful.

This was taken at the same time last month when I got the other water drop image – you can see it here.  If that image was taken today, it would be a frozen drop of water.  The highs were in the teens yesterday (and this past weekend, too) and it is supposed to be colder yet today, with overnight lows in the negative numbers. 

I wish I did have a fireplace by which to warm my feet.

  1. I got chills looking at this one… a warm fire sounds ever so cozy. Beautiful image.

  2. Fabulous perspective, and the beauty of that tiny droplet is astounding. Almost like the branch has a runny nose ha ha

    First class, Toni

  3. Perfectly simple..and simply perfect. Love this!!!

  4. That is great. I love it. Good luck with the cold. I am about to go to the other side of the planet where it is 90 degrees. A bit too much, but oh well.

  5. Amazing photo and use of macro. The sharpness of everything in focus and the existence of a background that is in soft focus creates an intensity of the photograph.

  6. The slightly off center drop and the overall sharpness is really great. Well done.

  7. I love the lack of colour, it makes me wish I had a fire place in a room with a big window so I could look out at the scene you have captured.

  8. Wow love the understated tones and the reflections on the drop.

    I was going to use that exact same phrase for my blog post today, but I decided to wait until the weather is indeed frightful, which I expect it will be soon. 🙂


    btw – I LOVE the calendar! I cannot wait to see each month’s photos (I’m going to save them for the beginning of the month and not look ahead)! Thanks so much – what a fun thing to win. 🙂

    Elizabeth, you got yours already? Wow, I can’t wait to see the cards.

    Toni, I like the simplicity of this.

  11. Thanks everyone for the kind words!
    Elizabeth – I can’t believe you got the calendar already! I just put it in the mail yesterday.
    Kym – Hopefully you’ll get the cards tomorrow. 🙂

  12. simple and beautiful, also nice tone …

  13. I love this…it would be beautiful in print…hanging on my wall…lol

    Seriously though, it’s beautiful.

  14. this is such a nicely toned image! and that drop of rain is pin sharp! i like this one a lot and i see it is going to freeze right here on this page since the snow is starting to accumulate 🙂

  15. What a great photo! And I love how you’re tying these photos in with the songs. Great idea!!
