Rain Walking

A mountain walk in the rain

water everywhere

Beads of water formed

on fallen leaves
but only on the ones that landed upside down.


  1. that's because the top side of most deciduous tree foliage is designed to be like a raincoat. the underside has the pores and also gives the best print. Eucalypts have pores on both sides so as to harvest as much water as possible [being a dry climate tree] and so they also print from both sides.

  2. This first picture looks like a heavily embossed stitchery - might that happen one day?

  3. What an enchanting forest, it must be a true pleasure to walk among those beautifully coloured trees.

  4. The leaf colours are really gorgeous!
