If I were less lazy…

I’d have taken a similar picture a few days ago

17th July 2014 - rain drops on pomelia

The above picture was taken on July 17th (2014) but a similar view was available a few days ago after a thunderstorm.

Funny how summer arrives and leaves with similar dance.
Random thunderstorms in the afternoon that announce or hot or cold days.

Getting closer to rain drops

I love rain drops,

it’s like discovering new little hidden worlds,

or better, little subsets of our world

Pomelia and rain drops - 17th July 2014

Just a short technical note:
I guess my new compact camera macro function is worth the money I spent for the camera.

Yet, I’m a little annoyed I cannot decide shutter speed and aperture, especially in macro mode, but well post editing helps with fixing lights a little.

Improper “use” of the moon

Full mon, plumeria and a spider web

full moon (May 24th)

This is one of those time when I decide to take pictures without knowing the reason.

I was just sitting on the sofa talking with a couple of friends when I thought “well, it’s full moon day, let’s see what is outside”

Not only I saw an amazing full moon that made me wonder if i should consider to try “astro-photography” (in few rude words: use a telescope as a lens for my camera)

but I started walking along the balcony in search of something. I didn’t know what it was, actually I can’ say if I found it. We’ll never know and it’s not an important fact.

One thing is sure though, I tried to see how Plumeria leaves with some filaments of spider web looked light against moon light.

[I understand that the web low resolution make difficult viewing the spider web, if you want, try clicking on the picture to open it bigger]

Rain, thunders and lightnings

It is pretty unusual for the end of July in Catania but weather is awful since today early morning

I went out looking for some lightning shot, but that’s what I got for the moment

Right now (12.33 pm) it’s getting dark and looks like another lightning group is coming… let’s see what happens
