I'm Rob, the editor of Light Stalking. I try to keep this ship on course.

Wandering around Flickr can really waste a lot of hours, but when we recently stumbled accross Steve Wall‘s photostreams and specifically, his photos of water droplets, well we were impressed.

Steve is an amateur photographer who shoots on a Nikon D200, in this case with a Nikkor 60mm Macro (and like many of us, started with an old AE-1) and we’re sure you will agree that he does it damn well too! We think he combines the best of macro photography with a fantastic imagination and comes up with some spectacular images. In fact we spent quite a lot of time going through his photos!

Now, macro photos of water droplets isn’t exactly something that might have your brimming with excitement, but we thing that after you have a look at these, you might be firing up your macro lens and heading into the garden on the next dewy morning.

    A father could not be more proud. Great pictures, and now some deserved recognition! Of course there is talent and equipment involved. But the patience required to amass such a portfolio is also far more than most people have or realize that Steve has. Wonderful photographs.

    @Dana – Wow – thanks for stopping by an leaving a comment! Your son is certainly very talented and we’re happy to give him that recognition. If traffic levels to this post are anything to go by, we’re certainly not the only people who think so!

    I just came across a note from your sister. We had seen the book of photos you published and would like to purchase one. Are they still available? Thank you for sharing your passion and talents with the world!

    wow, i cant believe he’s just an amateur! this is exceptionally very original, and im inspired to take these kind of photos. im an amateur myself and these photos just blew me away..im already reaching for my canon! :) one question though, did he edit them by brightening or contrasting the photos?

    While this issue can be very vexed for most people, my thought is that there has to be a middle or common ground that we all can find. I do value that you’ve added pertinent and sound commentary here though. Thank you!

    Beautiful and wonderful, looking this close up to the droplets feels as if I was transported to another world. That, and the vivid, and boldness of the colors just floors me and knocks me sideways.

    I'm looking to start doing flower photography. Is the lens he used?: Nikon Normal Macro 60mm f/2.8D AF Micro Nikkor 2x Teleconverter (4 Elements) . Is this the one you would recommend? Thanks.

    I have droplets coming from my eyes and running down my face after viewing your photos. Amazing is just not a strong enough word to describe your work.

    For star trail I am thinking about 35mm f/1.4 nikkor-nikon. Do you think it’s a right one or you recommand something else.
