I went to the arboretum after a heavy rain (and during a light drizzle) recently.  I left my spray bottle at home.  I probably wouldn’t have stopped to shoot these leaves if it wasn’t for the pattern of raindrops on them.

    I love drops of rain… they are so delicate, disappear very shortly after it has rained…very beautiful captures!!
    I had to google “arboretum”, this means a “botanical garden” in English?

      Thanks, Alexandra. Yes, you are correct. Kent Park Arboretum is not far from my house so it’s very convenient for me. They have a wide variety of flowers, shrubs, trees and evergreens.

      Thanks, Howard. On days it’s not raining I’ve been known to use a spray bottle filled with water just to get the water droplets. Cheating? Maybe just a little.

    Another oooooooo from me. The green looks so green. I think it’s because the raindrops break up the color to give us even more shades of green to contemplate. Maybe. The composition on the top photo is pretty special, too.

      Thanks, Linda. The heavy overcast accounts for a good deal of the saturation on these. If you can keep your equipment dry, this is the best time to shoot.
