I hate spiders & taking all these pictures was creepy.  That’s why I love these cute little flowers draped in webs.  It’s unedited.

I lied.  Since I had intended for red berries to go out today, but hit ‘publish’ instead of ‘schedule, I found a couple of more spiderweb pics I liked.  You’re welcome.

I touched up the lighting on this one, & I think that was it.

Last of the spiderwebs, for posting anyway.  I took lots of them, but most of the others are attempts to capture rows of webs that just don’t read well.

The web is hard to see again, but the center is very visible.  I like that, plus the barbwire fence in the background.  I touched up the light in this & added a touch of soft focus on the web.  I wanted to push the focus to the web without losing the background.  Not entirely sure it was successful, but I still like the pic & the web is there.  The subtlety works though.  I really like this picture.

Not a tree, but still part of the series.  Only a hint of touch up to the lighting on this one.

Dewy morning spiderwebs against a hay field with power lines.Tree Houses II

This one was more minimally edited, just a little lighting adjustment.  You can even see the dew drops in the web.  I love the power lines in the background.  Growing up in the country by a power plant I have always been fascinated by the juxtaposition of a the power plant equipment running through fields with dilapidated barns & so many signs of ye olden days it all seems out of sync.

Dewy morning spiderwebs in front of a hay field

Tree Houses I

Out walking particularly early the other morning & caught all of these dewy spiderwebs strung through the brush.  I had to run back for my camera, because as much as I hate spiders it was beautiful.  Thank goodness for zoom!

I edited this photo a great deal, so much I don’t even know what all I did.  Picasa has added two new tabs of advanced features, so I tried several out & cancelled most of them.  I was trying to bring out the top part of the web, but it was lost to the sky whatever I did.  There were better pictures of the webs, but for some reason I liked this picture best overall.  I like the way it turned out, even if the web didn’t come 0ut the way I wanted it to.  I’ll be posting several more of these.
