Ok, I tried again to get better focus on the drops, the problem today…not so much rain! But this did come out pretty cool. Big “exploding” splash, and I like the drip on the bottom!
My goal on this ugly rainy day was to photograph rain drops. I tried to capture them, “freezing” them in time. This was tough, and I don’t think they came out great. The hard part was focusing on where the drops were falling. Also I didn’t want to get my camera wet! I know what to do now, but it got dark early so I was not able to try it. Maybe tomorrow (since there is more rain in the forecast). Here’s 4 of my shots.
Ok, I am sort of cheating, this is a photo from yesterday, but I was way too busy and tired to go out tonight, or even hold up my camera (the Canon 40D is heavy!). This is water splashing on rocks at a fountain at the Palmer Events Center. I love photographing water at different speeds!
