Watery Wednesday

Once again I took my Watery Wednesday pictures while in the car, waiting for my kids to get out of school.  

These were taken from the inside of my car, using a Canon EF-S 55-250mm zoom lens to focus in on the water drops on my windshield.  Looks like mercury, or the surface of another planet!

It wasn't until January of this year that I took my camera off the totally automated setting and switched it to manual.  This type of shot is something I did not know how to do just a few months ago but seems so obvious and easy now.  The first shot focuses on the raindrops on the car window.  The second shot focuses on the chain-link fence just a few feet beyond my window, making the raindrops almost invisible.
