Water Droplets


At the end of a wet work day, I thought I’d poke around in the riverbed next to the office building for a little bit to see if there was anything to photograph. I found a small collection of water droplets on a leaf. I don’t have a macro lens, or much experience with macro photography at all, so I snagged this with my 50mm f/1.8.

Nach ein nassen Arbeitstag, erforschte ich das Flussbett neben dem Amt für Fotomöglichkeiten. Ich entdeckte ein Sammeln von Wasser-Tröpfchen auf ein Blatt. Ich habe eine Makroobjektiv nicht, und habe ich keine Erfahrung mit Makrofotografie, also ich es mit meine 50mm f/1.8 Objektiv fotografierte.

Fountain Creek

Es ist nicht einfach, zu machen lange Belichtungen im barsche Sonne. Das hat mich versuchen abhalten. Ich habe diese Bilder von Fountain Creek in Monument Valley Park in Colorado Springs geknipst.

It’s not easy to get long exposures in the daytime when the sunlight is harsh. But that didn’t stop me from trying. I took these of Fountain Creek in Monument Valley Park.

Short Shots

When taking pictures, it’s easy for me to get into a specific mindset about how a shot should look. Extended or long exposures of water seem natural to get that smooth, wispy appearance that looks so good (and a little magical, too).

However, extended exposures don’t capture the chaos of water flowing over rocks. And there’s some beauty in that too. Wendi suggested some short shots of the water over the Cascade downstream from Rainbow Falls.

As well as of the waterfall at Rainbow Falls itself:
