Hello my friends,

Todays post is simple grass with drops - but I think also the simple things can be beautiful when you look closer.

I hope you don't mind - and I also know that not everybody can understand why to be sad for an animal - but I'd like to dedicate this post to my beloved cat Sissi .
He died friday, 23.November 2007, in the evening.
We were crying the whole weekend now, every place we see in our house we remember this wonderful cat, always such a faithful friend, so funny, so cute.

He was also a glowing member of TN. And also of TL.
So often he were here next to me while I looked at your shots - and when he purred loud I knowed that he also loved your shots ;-)

So - many thanks that I were able to give him a memory here in this forum, I guess he would have loved it.

I will miss you so much ...

Hello Sabine,
We are neighbours today! Yes, rain or dew-drops can look beautiful, especially when set in such a fine composition on the green stems and taken with good sharpness and lighting. They look like Christmas decorations!

Sorry to hear about your cat: I'm sure he had a good life. We are very attached to our little dog, so I know what it feels like.
Best wishes and thanks,

Hi Sabine, simple and beautiful, great dedication to your lovely Sissy, very well done, ciao Silvio

This is such a beautiful and unusual shot of these droplets Sabine.
Excellent clarity and reflections,great colour in the grasses.
Wonderful image.

(I hope you will soon begin to feel happier again ... I'm sure Sissi must be in cat heaven now happily chasing mice :)

Hallo Sabine
Sehr schöne Aufnahme, es sieht beinahe festlich aus, perfekte Ausläuchtung, tolle Schärfe und Farben.
Gratulation, LG Robi

I kind of know how you feel; my pet parrot died recently and it was like a member of the family had died. Now there's something missing...
I'm sure you gave Sissi the best life possible. He looks very happy in both the photos... still I am very sorry for your loss.

What a wonderful photo of this grass and droplets... you are the queen of this kind of photography.
The sharpness and clarity is impeccable and you've handled the DOF with great skill.
Very well done Sabine!

Ja, liebe Sabine, habe dir ja schon geschrieben, und ich hoffe doch, dass du von uns hier doch etwas Trost erfahren kannst, was dir hilft, etwas leichter darüber hinweg zu kommen. Hatte dir gestern auch eine Mail über TL geschickt.Dieses Tropfenbild ist wunderschön, ein Symbol deiner Tränen um den Verlust der so innig geliebten Sissy,
LG Rose

Very nice closeup work Sabine, the image is a great tribute to your love for Sissi.
I know what it means to loose a beloved pet.
My condolence's.

I like that kind of shots. This one is great becouse there are only grass blades reflections here. Nice natural situation
Good job
Best wishes

All the colors and reflections are just beautiful. Very nice of you saying good bye to your beloved cat like this! I wish you to be happy soon!

Hi Sabine,
A beautiful capture of these dew drops over grass leaves. Excellent clarity and composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

You are simply the best at creating marvellous compositions with water droplets, Sabine. I recall quite a few of them from your previous posts.
This one is just beautiful in terms of technical excellence, composition and original creativity.
Thanks for sharing it and warm regards.

PS: Sorry about Sissi, Sabine. I can sincerely empathize; I lost my Cocker Spaniel Zoya in 2000 when I had to leave her with a relative in India before leaving for the Middle East. I cried my eyes out for days, thinking about her.

Hi Sabine

I can never get enough of your perfect water drops. I love the grass reflections in the water. Sharp and vibrant



p.s. I'm not posting until I have caught up with everyones photos, time seems to have escaped me lately.

tolle Idee und wunderbare Reflektionen in den Tropfen. An solchen schönen Fotos sieht man wie faszinierend die Natur ist.
Viele Grüße

Hi Sabine,
I saw a picture by Joey whith water drops and the first thing that shot to my mind was ur mastery over such shots :-)
This is an excellent shot, simple yet artistic.
Dedicating it to ur beloved pet strengthens the fact that ur a wonderful human being.
