West Seattle scenes: Sparkling jewels, drop by drop

Here’s another way to look at the fog that has blanketed us so – relentlessly? enthusiastically? snugly? choose your adverb – recently: Up close. Trileigh Tucker, nature photographer/writer who often shares her work on WSB, headed into Lincoln Park for these photos of what she calls “dew jewels.” These first two photos are from a witch-hazelbush:

Two more views ahead:

These sparkling droplets are atop “mystery mold” on a fencepost, Trileigh explains:

And she inverted this photo to show the upright reflection of nearby trees, appearing to be on a pedestal:

Trileigh has written about these scenes – and included a few other forest/fog views – on her website. And just as we finish writing these words, looks like the sun has broken through the fog again – a jewel all its own!

    WOW! Trileigh can you share what kind of a lens you used? Amazing pics!!

    You all are very kind! I used a Nikon D90, handheld, with a Nikkor 105mm macro lens for these photos. Thanks so much for your comments.
