Raindrop World

After a cold, gray upstate New York winter, we crave the sunshine that marks our spring and summer days. Rain is the intruder then, and most of us lament cloudy skies. Others appreciate rain’s gentle rhythms and its ability to heal thirsty soil. Some, like photographer Lindsay Adler, cleverly celebrate each and every drop of rain for what it reveals, perhaps the reflection of blooms and grasses nearby, or the amplified color of a petal. A series of raindrops makes intricate patterns on everything from a spider to a single piece of hay. Miniature worlds delight and surprise only upon very close examination. Take a moment now to enjoy these drops, and remember to look closely for the tiny worlds rain and nature create this spring.
