Today I showed up for my Gile Pond Project and the ice has not only melted, but it was completely still. It made for some pretty awesome photos. After I was done, I decided to have some fun by throwing a rock into the pond.
The first photo is of the rock just about to hit
The next photo is the splash. I used a high shutter speed for this series (1/320).
The next one is a second or so after the splash to allow for a larger ripple effect to form.
This final shot shows the purpose of the splash. I wanted to see what the ripples did to the mirrored trees. Beautiful! (CLICK ON IT TO VIEW A MUCH LARGER VERSION)
Even though this is a contrived photograph in nature, it was a fun experiment that I may use in the future. The key word here is fun, which is why I'm taking photos in the first place.
What do you think?
