Hello lovely Steemians !
First of all I want to thank all of you for accepting me as a new PowerHouseCreative into your ranks. I saw this community already several times and always wondered what it is about. After some in-depth research I decided to apply to you and I am so happy that you accepted me. This here is my first entry to the PowerHouseCreatives and to one of your great contests by @zord189. By the way, if you want to learn more about me, there is a link at the bottom of the post ^^
As some of you may already know I am a huge fan of nature and nature photography in general. After seeing @brittandjosie once posting about her new LenseBall I instantly wanted one too. By the way, thank you @brittandjosie for always supporting me in all my doings and inspiring me so much throughout my whole journey in the steemisphere ;) .. Lenseballs are really nice tools. They are made from crystal glass of the highest quality, without any air pockets or bubbles. They usually have a diameter of 60mm, 90mm or 110mm and can reflect their surroundings as a mirrored, sharp and crystal clear 180-degree view in a spherical fashion. Amazing toys for any photographer, hehe ^^
Unfortunately I had a serious accident on my left shoulder in January and until April I will not be able to use it as it weights nearly 1 kg. But as an Astrochemist and Nature-Lover I know that for every single invention that humankind ever created there is already something out there, something natural, that is capable of the same things, and even far better in most of the cases. In this case it is a simple but nevertheless amazing water droplet ^^
There is a lot of physical explanations behind water droplets, but for a quick explanations I just want to say this here. A droplet is basically the form that a liquid is adapting because it exhibits surface tension and inter-molecular interactions between every single molecule of the liquid. Thereby is it always the energetic most favored thing to form out a ball, like water droplets or soap-bubbles are doing. Until a certain size drops are holding together due to this inter-molecular interactions and the surface tension. But if you know how to increase those, like soap-bubble experts are doing, you can create gigantic bubbles or droplets this way. OK, enough theoretical background ^^
Luckily for me it was raining a lot here the last days and on my way to work today, I have to walk through the Botanical Garden on my way, I had the chance to find some nice water droplets hanging in the trees and on the flowers everywhere. So I took my change and tried to picture some nice lense droplet photographs for you. It was a bit windy and I am still incapable to move my left arm freely, but I tried my best to capture them as sharp as possible.
I hope you enjoyed my little introduction to the PowerHouseCreatives Community and my entry for its In-house Contest about the "Best Thing You Have Bought". I have to admit that I actually was not able to use this thing, the LenseBall yet, but I tried my best to show you an even more amazing feature. One of nature great features itself, about the pictures in her own LenseDroplets ^^
Thank You For Reading And Watching ^^
