surface tension

Raindrops keep falling, and falling, and falling

We have had a lot of rain lately in Seattle. Nothing unusual, but just about everyday now for a couple of weeks. So water is on my mind, and how water responds to surfaces, from metal to plants to the body. So, naturally, I dug up a couple of water and rain photos I shot about a year and a half ago. I particularly love the effect of surface tension when water droplets form on surfaces when it rains. (Click on each photo for a larger image on a separate picture page.)
