The story behind the image
Sometimes, just sometimes you spot something really beautiful that calls for an immediate photo. Something that sits between a snapshot and a well-planned photo. That’s because the photo opportunity does not vanish within seconds, but it’s not well-planned either.
This is one of those shots. After a rainshower in the early morning, several drops had formed on a large grass in front of our house. I had been preparing the camera for another shooting later that day, so I had it ready and just captured this beautiful scene.
The wide open aperture put the focus on the raindrops and created a nice blur. The colors are reduced to all green. And the dark top left corner of the background is the ideal copyspace. Nice.
