Watery Wednesday - Summer memory


For today's photo I'm ignoring the raging wind and cold while diving into late summer archives.  I went to practice with my manual settings at a nearby park.  There is a fountain there that you can run through, as the water comes up from under the pavement in different patters.  I suppose it is like ones you would see in Las Vegas or a really large indoor mall.  It is heaps of fun for the kids during the summer.  This was a hot day, later afternoon, but when school was in session...which is the only way I could get photos without kids all over!

I love how some of the water seems suspended in the air, while the waterfall in the background keeps flowing.  It was great fun to test all kinds of shots out there.  For more water photos:




Now back to you regularly scheduled snowstorm...

Ahhhhhhhhh, yes, I'd much prefer the watery, warmth in your photo. "Back to your snowstorm?"....No. I'm living way south USA...where it DOESN'T snow.

Sometimes its fun to dig into the old photos of past seasons. It reminds us there is hope to see green, beautiful, warm weather again!

Great shot - the water looks frozen in mid air. Stay warm!

I can imagine what great fun the children have with this in the summer time. I'm sure, right now, everyone is longing for the heat!

Yes, I like how the water looks when you stop the action just as it starts to fall back down.

Hi MarieElizabeth,

I really like your photo. It is bouncy and full of energy. Did you use the advanced sports shooting setting (or whatever your camera calls it)? You have given me some great ideas!

Thank you so much for stopping by to say hi.

Take care,

Kathy

I was thinking it's a bit like you stopped time, but maybe that's what all photography is? Anyway, it's a wonderful capture!
