Photo captured early morning August 28, 2010. I shot this while out watering. I used a slow shutter speed to get the water trails. Have a fantastic upcoming week everyone, and happy shooting. :) Tommy

    This is so beautiful Tommy! The streaks look so thin, too. Amazing. I thought it was a DDR effect at first. Now I am even more impressed knowing it was slow shutter!

Great job!!!

Very well done my friend. We went to Canada by the time we got back our flowers were pretty well shot. Could use some rain for sure here.

Perfect use of a slow shutter speed...the water trails are terrific, Tommy! Have always wanted to do this for the same reason you did, I bet - this looks like a lovely "sunshower" falling on this beautiful canna with all the beautiful golden light filtering thru. Wonderful!

Thanks everyone very much for the wonderful comments. I had read an article on how to do these kind of shots about a year ago, and just now got around to trying it Val. It was a fun experience, I just wish I would have tried it sooner. I will come see you to shoot the Spring Shelly, and am game for finding one of the herds also. Have a wonderful day everyone, and happy shooting.
:) Tommy
