Taken with Olympus E500 digital camera on March 11th, 2007. Click picture for larger view.
I photographed this water drop back in March when there was still winter and not much living things around me. In the winter it can be hard to find colors up here in northern Norway, but you can find wonders in nature if you look hard enough.
Really liked the way the yellow lichen created a nice background against the falling water drops.
Try to click the image to look at it large. Can you see me in the reflection?
You should also be able to see the sun and a big mountain. It is the same mountain as you can see in this photo and this photo.

I can speak on this post because I made a detector drops of water for SLR photography.
This small electronic circuitry detects a falling drops of water with an infrared barrier. It can detect extremely small objects but also transparent objects like drops of water.
The electric installation is very easy to achieve.
All details of installation, drawing, explanations and examples of photos are available on my website:
