Vickie, I have to tell you that I took nearly 1000 shots that day trying to catch a droplet that had been newly released from an icicle. I probably got 5-10 shots of a droplet in that state of suspended animation but this was by far the best. I had no idea that we'd get the reflection, that was just the happy surprise when we zoomed in!

If you're interested in the shooting details here they are:
Shot with a Nikon D60 with a AF-S Nikkor 55-200mm 1:4-5.6 telephoto lense set at 200mm. We use a Sport setting on the camera a lot for stopping surfers and kite surfers "in their tracks" so to speak and used it successfully here too. That setting resulted in a shutter speed of 1/1000 @ f 5.6 and an ISO of 180. No flash and no tripod.


Ok fabulous, incredible, how did you do it???

Loved the photos of the melting mirror.......amazing.......send more pictures.....I bet you were so happy not to have totravel and are Blessed.



I am not sure that there are enough adjectives to describe these wonderful, fabulous and unusual photos. Yes, in clicking on the droplet, one can see the reflection of your neighbors house. Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
