During an excursion on the high Madonie, in Sicily (Italy), my eye was drawn to this weathered spiderweb, adorned with shimmering drops of dew. All that was required to show it off at its best was just a little more light, which was achieved by shooting in black and white and slightly increasing the ISO. Because beads of water have a tendency to gather at roughened spots on the web, at thread intersections for instance, this is where the larger dew drops are found. Photo taken on June 14, 2020.
