Have to Get Wet

August 30, 2018  •  2 Comments

Yes, I stood in the stream to get this photo. I found secure spots for the legs of my tripod so that I could blur the rush of the water with a longer exposure. I could have stood on the bridge, but that wasn't the photo I wanted. Sometimes, you have to get wet to create the image. 

I got wet swimming today. Duh, by definition that happens. But today, it rained while I swam. I have been using a full face mask to allow me to strengthen my knee since the injury last September. So for lap after lap, my view point is from the underside of the surface of the water. It is another world experience with the sunlight sparkling through the ripples on the surface. Today, it rained as I completed the last few laps and the drops would pierce the surface about an inch or so during the brief cloudburst. It was awesome. And I felt the cool raindrops on my body as I swam and saw them plunge into the pool as I watched them. Wow! It's great to be alive!

Beautiful photo. It like looking and admiring a Thomas Kincaid painting.
