An Icicle and A Drop To Be

Today I wanted to do some macro of the icicles and water droplets that are hanging off the front roof. I had used my iPod on a few and posted one on Instagram but wanted to use my extension tubes on some. Since yesterdays experience I know I will need a tripod. After checking out the situation I decided there was no safe way to do that quickly and moved to plan B. I broke out the PowerShot S3 and went at it.The end result: Water dropping on to the lens cover and rolling down inside the housing. Not good but after I dried it out I had an idea, and yes you should be afraid, and here is where it gets brilliant  weird. I take an old magnifying glass I have, put the small high magnification spot over the lense. This should allow me to still shot in macro mode but I would not have to be as close to the subject, therefor missing the droplets. Nuff words….here is the shot.
