    I chose an image of a waterfall cascading over Ash Cave in Southern Ohio.  Michael

      Really nice Michael. I bet the sound of the water splashing added to a wonderful experience while you were there.

        Dave, thanks for your comments. Yes, not sure why the sound of water is very calming. You can't really tell, but the drop you see is about 70 feet.

        It may have been. I know it was a north/south county road going towards Ithaca.

      Neat looking spot! Those trees picked a strange place to grow. I am guessing they don't always have their feet in the water? Is this in the spring?

      • #392264

        This area of Yellowstone is geologically unstable and continually changing. I imagine that when those trees were growing, very little or none of the mineral deposits you see in the images existed. Some eruption(s) and/or change(s) in water flow decades ago likely caused acidic and mineralized water to flow into this area, resulting in gradual buildup of layers, dams, and pools as water evaporated and minerals deposited more at the edges. The trees quickly died in the acidic waters and, because decay is very slow in this area, their skeletons hang around for a long time.

        These photos were  taken July 23, 2007.

      Thanks for sharing Roger, these bring back memories of when I visited Yellowstone!  Please tell me that you had a filter on your lens.  I walked trough a cloud of mist and it pitted my nice sunglasses.

      Great catch of a brave dog Diane. The well focused details and the contrast between the powerful movement in the scene and the still dog make the image for me.

      Wow I love this Leanne. It really appeals to my sense of scaled repeating patterns. The seagull is an added bonus but a massive fillip to the image. Would love to see this scene with a longer exposure creating the milky effect.

        Thanks Graham! I was walking by, with my family. No tripod. It was shot “on the fly” so no opportunities for slow shutter. But that would look pretty cool too.

      Great catch Leanne. The gull reminds me of the kid who runs the water so his parents will hear it but never actually gets wet.

    Ducks in a Row

    These ducks actually have feathers that retain water so they can dive and swim faster, I read somewhere this species spends 85% of its life under water. Please don't tell me I need to clean my lens or sensor, those are a few thousand flying insects.

      Never seen a duck like this before. What an amazing looking creature. Looks like it has a skin of water clinging to it like some future test duck design going through underwater speed trials.

    Has been awhile since the last addition so here's a wet rose bud. Well, damp at least.

      The dof, strong colors and sharp focus of all the details are all fantastic. Lovely image, Dave. I hope the rose bloomed well.

        Thanks for the comment Bobbie. This is a wild rose. I actually like the look of the buds more than the rose in full bloom. It doesn't have that classic, elegant rose shape to it.
