Web design!!

The day before yesterday saw a really heavy fog at sunrise (we didn’t actually see a sunrise!).  I knew that the spider webs would be beautiful and wasn’t disappointed, but from a photography point of view (excuse the pun), as the light slowly got better so the wind picked up.  This shot isn’t as sharp as I would like (also on an old DSLR)  but still an interesting web full of beads of moisture.  The reflections are dormant vines and the trellis system.

    Lovely delicate shot … and it’s a shame the wind always gets up at the wrong time! A weather person could tell us but I recall it’s something to do with the changing temperature as the sun rises – and viva versa as it sets …… ?

    I’ve tried photographing spider-webs with drops too, it’s not very easy to compose this well…. – but I’ll take my hat off for yours here!
