Stunning Macro Photos of Dandelion Water Droplets

Fine art photographer Sharon Johnstone transports us to a world where dew drops look like massive orbs of water laying atop towering, yet slender, dandelion petals. Miraculously enough, this realm is our planet through the UK-based photographer’s macro lens. It is absolutely breathtaking the way the transparent spheres of liquid balance on wisps of flowers and feathers, not to mention the stunning colors found in nature.

Johnstone’s series of macro photography is inspiring, to say the least. Capturing the magnified structure of each flower coupled with its beaded crystalline passengers makes the architectural images seems so grandiose up-close but the truth is that so much of nature goes unnoticed in daily life. Johnstone says, “With macro photography I escape to another little world. I love exploring the tiny details in nature that often get over looked. I love finding beautiful colours and abstract compositions within nature and can even get passionate about photographing moss or a blade of grass.”
