Spring blooms and morning dews (April 2010)

There is nothing that I love more on an early spring morning than the lovely sight of spring blooms laden with morning dews. The sight of flowers glistening from those morning dews that seem like countless diamonds is simply breathtaking. I feel like the world has been renewed, refreshed and reinvigorated. I cannot help but look up in the sky and thank the One above for this wonderful day.

About Malou
I'm a mom to a five-year old little girl with interest in cooking, baking, traveling and photography. Castles and palaces are special favorites so when weather permits for a good walk on weekends, me, hubby and little girl are always out for a bit of adventure.

  9. simplicitymaven says:

    I love viewing your photos. We don’t have 4 seasons here and I miss seeing the changes of spring and fall… not the crazy weather but the flow of one season into another. Thank you for making my day.

    • Malou says:

      I came from the tropics and didn’t have the 4 seasons there but I love the warm weather the whole year round. I came to love the 4 seasons here too, though I always need to get used to the cold even after so many years here. ;-)

    Who can know the mind of God . . . what magnificent photos of what He’s given us to enjoy. I would also like to know what settings you used for the dewy ones. Thanks for visiting me, now following you.

    • Malou says:

      When I see this beauty around, I am assured of God’s presence and love.

      I normally used the “Sports” setting especially when there is a bit of movement from the wind and other factors.

  12. maisonmaria says:

    Beautiful photos, out of this world!

  13. Wonderful pictures. What is the lens specification? each dew drop is captured meticulously. It’s true that one cannot help but look up in the sky and thank the One above for such a wonderful day. And you have captured that very nicely.

  70. Abena says:

    what beautiful photos – thank you for sharing – and for reading my blog!

  71. sofitoffee says:

    Amazing shots Malou! By far the best photos I’ve seen of morning dew, and that tiny insect with dew drops on its head is just precious!! Thank you for the inspiration :)

  72. signature103 says:

    Surreal dew. Must have been a magical morning.

  73. Jennifer says:

    “Walk me out in the morning dew my honey, walk me out in the morning dew today.” Your pictures have me humming that anti-nuclear protest song, Morning Dew. May our children never wake to a morning that they must fear the dew . . . may it always be as pure and beautiful and transcendent as your art conveys.

  74. Meg says:

    stunning photo after stunning photo

  75. Just one more comment on how incredible these are!

  76. Those are fantastic photos!

    I wish I had the patience but I’m really just a “point and shoot” photographer.

    I’m not a fan of having my own photo taken and I much prefer to take photos of people when they don’t know they’re having their picture taken…

    I grab photos when I can and some of my best photos have been along the seafront snapping at the waves.

    Thanks for posting these, they’re beautiful.

  77. These are just so pretty!! Great detail :)

  78. Zoe @ Pantry and Fridge says:

    Such beautiful pictures! I love them, especially the critters :)

    Thank you!!

  79. Kathryn says:

    What a wonderful collection of photographs! :-D

  80. goudreinet says:

    Beautiful pictures. I like the poor bug (vlieg) with dew on its head! You have a great sense for detail. Thanks for liking and following my blog also. Interesting to see your views (!) of The Netherlands as I have left my country long ago in search for “greener grass” elsewhere…!

  81. Simply magical, breathtakingly beautiful photos! It’s as though each bloom and insect and spiderweb were captured in pure crystal or, as you say, diamonds. Exquisite!

  82. vagabondaway says:

    Beautiful photos! I have a thing for raindrops on flowers as well :)

  83. Gorgeous! If you don’t mind me asking, what kind of lens and what setting did you use?

    I love your photos. These of dew remind me that there is so much in the world that is amazing, and that I should always slow down and enjoy it.

  84. Meredith Barnes says:

    These are so beautiful!!!

  85. Malin says:

    Absolutely beautiful pictures! The drops are teasingly fantastic (in a good way ;)). Almost magical, especially #13. Love it!

  86. A J says:

    It’s a beautiful droplets and flowers display. Loved each one of it.

  87. karencooking says:

    The detail is amazing. How often do we see flowers and never notice intricacies like this? Beautiful!

  88. mollysaurus says:

    Gorgeous photos! Dew has such an ephemeral beauty :)

  89. ddLynn says:

    WOW!!!!!!!! Amazing and stunning!!!!

  90. Beautiful! They remind me of spun glass. (Nia sent me)

  91. aurumdawn says:

    What a great focus on such a small yet stunning piece of nature. It’s amazing how much beauty is around if you only stop and look, this has certainly encouraged me to do that more often. Wonderful photography!

  92. Oh wow. Sometimes when I think I’ve seen it all, then I see something new which blows me away! Rendered speechless in the presence of such beauty. Sharon

  93. Absolutely wonderful photos. A delightful feast to one’s eyes! :)
