Surface Tension
Lens: Sigma 70-300 DL f4-5.6 Camera: K20D Photo Location: Melbourne ISO: 200 
Posted By: Cee Cee, 11-26-2012, 06:55 AM

took these a while back, just having another look and thought they were kinda interesting, light catching the distorion of the water surface caused by parts of the plant being kept afloat by surface tension.

It's hard to imagine that a few tightly-packed water molecules at the surface of a pond could produce such beauty. Actually, it's your eye and use of the camera that really produced these striking photos.

Thanks for sharing this creative shot Cee Cee. There is so much going on is a small pool of water. Lots of fun to photograph with often surprising results.

thank you so much for the nice comments, I mostly find I have to make a conscious effort to see what's in front of me, usually its more to do with the mood I'm in rather than what I'm looking at.
cheers.

"I mostly find I have to make a conscious effort to see what's in front of me..." I think I need to do this more.
