Rain | {The Serenity Project}

I love a rainy day.

Recently we had a very rainy weekend (unrelated to Hurricane Florence!) and Monday morning found me wandering around my yard with my camera and macro lens.

My go-to lens these past few years for macro has been my Velvet 56, but lately I find myself reaching for my Sigma 105mm macro and I’m enjoying the results!

(I’m pretty sure my neighbors think I’m nuts, as they observe me camera in hand taking images of random leaves and blades of grass.)

I also came upon a spider web covered in rain. It looked like jewels.

I don’t know where the occupant of the web was, but she didn’t bother me.

The Serenity Project is a collaborative photography project. Photographers post monthly and wish to capture a sense of peace and calm with their imagery. Please continue the circle to my friend,  Wendy May  to see what brought her some serenity this month.

  1. Loving these macro images Eileen. There is something about photographing after the rain that I really love as well but I enjoy viewing images like these even better. Seeing such images makes me want to learn more about this genre than ever. So beautiful and inspiring.


  2. Oh, these are fabulous, Eileen; especially the spiderweb looks awesome. Such beautiful images you have captured with your macro lens. I am so ready to be outdoors again; I hope soon.
