Wonderfully done Rob . . . of course!! I too really like the way the water is frozen!! You can just feel the anticipation of the moment.

Super capture, Rob. I concur with the stop-action catch of the water. Looks like your son is anticipating when he gets tall enough to reach the water. C'mon, give him a boost ;)

LOVE this shot, Rob! As I constantly try and steer my three-year old away from these water fountains-germs-
you make me wonder if I should just give in and take advantage of the photo op! Hey, by the way-- love all of your photographs in your gallery, and equally enjoy reading your captions. Ironically, I also have two kids....Madylon and Jack- great names!
