Photographer: Kym Ahrens, Seattle

Photo taken: Dec. 21, in photographer’s yard

Photographer's description: "I was trying to capture different portrayals of water (in an effort to stay inspired during the current wet season). I like how you can see a reflection of some of the leaves upside down in one of the lower water drops. Taken with Nikon D5100, f/20, 200mm, ISO 280."

Expert says: "This is a beautiful picture of great repetition and aesthetics. I love the contrast of the pointy leaves with the delicate rain droplets, which look like bubbles ready to be popped. The droplets clinging to the leaves are very elegant and are what make this photo so interesting. Great job getting in close."

-- Katie G. Cotterill, Seattle Times photo staff
