Good things come … to those who wait

A close up of condensation forming on a cool glass of Guiness in the sunshine

Day 8 of the macro challenge, and this soaring heat has inspired me to consider taking a shot of something cool and refreshing.

Today’s shot is the head of a pint of Guinness. Bubbles of condensation have formed on the outside of the glass as the glass warms in the sunshine. I like the contrast of the black against the creamy white head of the Guinness and the shiny water droplets. I also like the honeycomb structure of the condensation where the foam of the head meets the cool but warming liquid.

I had tried this shot last week with more transparent liquid, but the contrast levels and detail were not sufficient. I’m much happier with this shot today.
