Sprinkler Fun.. 7 pics
Posted By: mtnbearhug, 06-09-2008, 09:05 PM

My son was having so much fun playing in the sprinkler on Sunday that I had to try and capture some of it.. Let me know what you think... Working with the twirling water was harding than I thought... Pics are taken with my 80-200 some have a bit of touchups and some hardly have any PP.... enjoy!!!

Dancing in the water.... and "are you comin in Mom!!!".....


In the face!!! LOL


Warn out....lol...




The rainbow was fun as well... Im trying to figure out some way to use it....


I hope you enjoy them as much as he enjoyed playing in the water lol.... Kim

Nice as they maybe Kim, please don't rub my nose in it. We have a mandatory reduction in water usage over here in the Bay Area. What's your watering schedule, I may have to pay you a visit once we really get into summer and have some fun under that sprinkler myself. I've been showering in a bucket for the last two months and the water's getting pretty yukky.

I love the rainbow affect, especially in the 2nd photo. Awesome.

Makes me wish I were a kid again.

Wow, you certainly have fun with the water. No luxury here even to water the garden.

Some great shots where you got your son in focus with water splash everywhere.

Kim,

Two things....

First, this is a nicely done series and it looks like a good time was had by all. But, hasn't it been cold out by you? Isn't there snow falling in the mountains today?

And... forgive me my faux pas on my introductions to POW# 14. It has been corrected and my sincere apologies for my error

Stephen

Thanks James... Im glad you enjoyed them... I took about 15 all together.. it was hard to get the focus right with water constantly moving.. (twirling sprinkler).. I can say thought my son slept pretty well that night..
