Photo of The Day: Foggy Tracks

I’ve had a photo close to this in my head for a while of railroad tracks disappearing into fog. Got some nice fog and light this morning right at the spot I was hoping for!

Photo of the Day: Sunset at Dunedin Marina

Sunset near the Dunedin Marina, looking out towards Honeymoon Island. The lines and light on this little beached sailboat caught my eye, really fun place to wander around with the camera and just be creative.

Photo of the Day: . Foggy Sunrise Over Lilly Pads

????+☁️=????. A foggy sunrise over a pond full of lily pads. This is favorite spot of mine in the fog. Having shot it a few times, I really wanted to do a vertical composition of it. This morning’s light and fog seemed just about right for it.

Photo of the Day – Rainbow Spider

Here’s a challenge to any physicists, entomologists, spider enthusiasts, etc. Can you explain the science behind what is going on in this photo?

This past summer, I posted a series of shots of “Rai” the rainbow spider, who had built a web in the corner of our patio/lanai. Every morning the web would catch the sun in this dazzling rainbow, something I had not seen any other spider web produce to this vibrant degree. I never really understood why this web was different. So while organizing and editing some of those photos for a submission this past week, I decided to try to get an answer to the mystery of the rainbow web. So far I have got a number of responses, and answers of “diffraction grate”, refraction, and “sticky droplets”. I am hoping one of you can fully explain, or at least I want to watch a physicist and entomologist have a bare knuckles throw down.

Want to see more here you go!
