Sunday Stills Challenge - Water

The challenge this week was rather...vague. It was suggested that a lake or river could help, but water can include soooo many things!


I didn't end up with any pictures of rivers or lakes, but I did get snow, rain, frost, steam and water from the tap and the hose. All different forms of water. My favorites, oddly enough, were the pictures from the hose and tap.


The boyfriend likes to help me come up with ideas for the Sunday Stills Challenges, so he figured it was as good a time as any to clean out the horses water troughs and I could get some pics of water while he was filling them. This was one of my favorites from that "photo shoot"...



I like it that it is a little mysterious and you'd never guess that it was just water in a horse's water trough.


My other favorites were just macro shots with a fast shutter speed on the kitchen faucet. Our kitchen sink is black and I really like the effect of the dark background.



Again, I like that they are mysterious and weird. It almost looks like a bunch of diamonds falling. Maybe that's why I like them.

I don't think I need a macro lense until I see shots like this. Great job!
