Very nice capture, Ron!
The big water drop really adds an extra 'umpf' to this image. Nicely done!

Ronald F. Fischer 1/6/2006 11:38:59 AM

Thank you very much, Mike. I have found the secret to getting good sharp water drip shots is to use manual focus, and then take lots of pictures. I snapped about 20 in order to get this shot! #2259490
