Hello my dear TN-friends.

Today's post is showing you a simple waterdrop - but first it was a tiny snowball.
After melting a little - the waterdrop had still some ice-crystals inside.
I like this effect, hope you also do.

Hello Sabine,

This is a fantastic shot one that I've never seen before and the image is crystal clear, the lighting is perfect, it looks like some kind of crystal art piece, or one of Frosty the Snowman's tear drops. Happy Holidays! :)

au premier coup d'oeil j'ai reconu ton travail,je suis toujours impressionné par les details dans tes gouttes d'eaux.
est ce qu'il pleut toujours en allemagne?
a non de la neige!!!

Love the effect! The reflection and the many shades of colour produced by the droplet are first class!
Best Wishes

Hallo Sabine, sehr schönes Makro. Tadellose Schärfe und eine kristallklare Abbildung des Tropfens. Diese Effekte habe ich noch nie gesehen. Danke für das schöne Foto. - Streß habe ich momentan mehr als genug - aber keinen Weihnachtsstreß. Dieses Jahr ist es mir überhaupt nicht nach Weihnachten zumute. Werde mich in nächster Zeit bei TN etwas kürzer halten. Habe zwar noch reichlich Schmetterlinge, Füchse, Luchse und Hoverflies, mir fehlt aber die Zeit um Kritiken zu schreiben.

Cool pic Sabine,
Superb macro, interesting an unusual picture as well.
Would like to give 3 points but can't...
Superb work !!!!

It really looks exceptional, great post Sabine!
I like it very much!

Hi Sabine

Great anticipation to wait for the ice to melt. Well caught. Excellent detail. TFS.


Hi Sabine,
Excellent capture, Good sharp detail and colours. Great POV.
Nicely composed and good exposure. Your macro shots are fast becoming some of my favorites on TN.
Thanks for posting. Enjoy the rest of the week.

Thanks very much for sharing. Great post.
Regards, Felipe :D

Hello Sabine
Simplemente la foto es magnífica, perfecta. Por su calidad, por que es el momento justo, por los colores.
Felicitaciones Sabine.
Simply the photo is magnificent, perfect. By its quality, so that it is the right moment and by the colors.

A great composition, ice is fascinating not only in humongous sizes I seelike Antarctic icebergs or Patagonian sized glaciers, all it takes is a drop to gaze the beauty of it.

Wow, really a particular macro! Very good colours!

Wow Sabine!
Amazing effect of texture, beautiful sharpness and good fantasy :)
Best wishes,
PS.You have really great lens on your camera.

The effect is pretty amazing. It looks like the droplet is filled with jelly fish.

Amazing shot, maybe keep the writing of the photo and on the frame. The picture is really too good to have writing on
