Water, water everywhere

Water drop

Ker-plop!

Today’s weather forecast called for an 80% chance of rain, and they got it right… so it was time to get out the toys again and see what I could do. I had bookmarked an article on capturing water drops sometime last winter, and today was the day to give it a try. The result was hours of entertainment!

Although the only requirement is really a camera and flash, having the remote flash trigger/receiver certainly helped. The video on the aforementioned site was really all I needed to get going; piercing the plastic bag full of water just right was the biggest challenge.

So Blue

No doubt I’ll spend some more time playing with water drops this winter.
