A Dewy Morning by AreteEirene A Dewy Morning by AreteEirene
I happened to go out the other morning a bit before dawn (I was still up - hadn't been to bed yet) and there was pea soup fog outside which was really pretty in and of itself. I noticed one or two spiders had been really busy overnight on my flowers, and there were four or five dewy perfect webs amongst the stems and branches. So I ran back in and grabbed my camera.

Photo converted from RAW. This is the first time I've really changed the image so it doesn't look much like the plain flat RAW. I found that upping the dark shades really made the web pop. I like it that way.

No sign of the spider though. :(

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-12-14
"This deviation is so surreal, so misty, so otherworldly that it looks like a digital painting versus a photograph. I look at it often and realize just how perfect the web looks from a determined spider making a web in the flowerbox in the dewy morn."

Thank you! :)

I don't have a macro lens; I just get as close as I can with the one I do have. For close shots I switch over to manual focus.
