What to do in a rainy day? Grab your camera, go outside and look for water droplets. And if you don't want to get your camera wet, just wait for the rain to stop. Yesterday afternoon, after the rain stopped, the sun came out. I went out for a walk and I saw these pine tree needles hanging from a fence. The sun hitting the needles from the side gave them that golden color effect. It also gave those beautiful specular highlights to the water droplet. Taking pictures of water droplets is great. They work as magnifing glasses.
Please keep in mind that the exposure settings listed above only work for the lighting conditions I had when I took the picture.
