A Photo a Week Challenge: Raindrops


Spring in Utah is an interesting thing. In April, the weather varied between temperatures in the 60s and 70s to snow. The mountains surrounding the Salt Lake Valley are still covered in snow, and the last week we have had more rain than we usually see the entire month of May. But that might mean that we won’t have another rainstorm until July. That’s just the way it goes.

With the rain yesterday, I had fun capturing the raindrops on my tulips. Rain can be tricky to photograph, but raindrops on objects are a lot of fun. They give things a fresh feeling.


Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

  1. Nothing like “raindrops on roses” or on many other things as well. We’ve had plenty rain and I love drop photos but unfortunately I’ve already posted for the day, so mine would be linked to a recent post, not a new one. I’ll think about whether I want to double post or not. 😀. Very tempting.


  2. Love the rain drops staying on leaves and flowers. Raindrops are hard to come by in California. In the mountains it drops 10 degrees when rain falls, so I rather be inside. This is a waterflow in Hortus, in the North of the Netherlands.

  3. It’s delightful how much a scenery changes after rain, and raindrops everywhere make wonderful accessories to the freshness. Your picture captures it perfectly, Nancy! I love the theme.

    1. Thanks, Anita! I love everything about rainstorms: watching the clouds gather, hearing the rain hit the roof and the sound of thunder, and the beauty after the storm passes. It’s all so wonderful.

  4. Love the colours in your image – and as Anthony T. Hincks has said – “Flowers are never lonely when they have raindrops as friends.” – that is just what your images tell me.
