[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
This is dedicated to Mr. Bob Shannon for his active help in identifying my previous post. Thanks a lot for viewing.

Two Isreali inventors, Joseph Cory and Eyal Malka, have been inspired by dew drops on spider webs. The webs catch the dew from the air. So Cory and Malka constructed a giant spider web, making it possible to collect drinking water from the air.
Actually it is no more than a large sheet with a hole in the middle where a plastic container hangs, this pulls the sheet tight, to form an inverted pyramid. Dew drops fall onto the sheet and run down into the container.

The prototype hung between trees, but the next will be self supporting. It collected 20 litres of clean drinking water, but the end product will collect more.
The inventors hope this will find a use in refugee camps.

Wow! Beautiful image and a lovely dedication to Bob.
Each droplet is perfect.
Great lighting and exposure.
Well done Haraprasan,

This is incredible! Perfection of nature shown through perfect photography. Surprisingly beautiful! TFS

Wow...patterns and water too...a multi purpose Israeli gadget. The water supply is going to be a problem in the Middle East...fantastic patterns though...and catching the drops...with some MOST informative notes...I am going to do some research on this. Isn't TN fun!??Thanks much!

NAMASTAY Haraprasan,

Hi Haraprasan,
very well done indeed, this is great! i never tire of water dropelet shots..and this one is so well done! Clear and well framed...Bob is very lucky indeed. Beautiful work.
The technique you speak of is actually quite an old one and has been used by survivalists in the British Army for years to get drinking water in desert conditions...would love to see it on a large scale though!

Hi Haraprasan,
different image but very nice shot of beautiful water droppings.
Thanks, best wishes

Hello Haraprasan

The droplets are amazing,like tiny jewels suspended in mid air.
Well composed the shot is very artistic.
Spot on focus and sharp details.
The colours are well saturated.
