Sunday Stills - Water Droplets

The challenge for this week was to take a picture of water drops or water splashing.  This was quite a challenge -- but a fun one -- for me.  I've never played with shutter speed before.  Thanks, Ed, for the challenge of going beyond the "auto" setting on my point and shoot camera.  If you want to see more water drop pictures, click on the Sunday Stills picture in my side bar.

I took my camera down to the horses' water trough.  I asked Jackson to join me and he, in turn, invited Kalvin.


I started by taking pictures of the water coming into the trough but quickly changed my focus to the horses who were very helpful in creating splash and water drops.



Can you see Jackson's tongue in the water?
