Action at the Water Wheel

2011.04.22
pixel
As the "pockets" in the wheel fill with water, the weight of the water causes the wheel to turn forward.

A slower shutter speed captures the blur of the moving wheel and the falling water.

Much better enlarged! The slow shutter catches the trails made by the small droplets of water splashing on the wheel.

This water wheel at Silver Dollar City is turned by water falling into many open containers built into the wheel.

djnana These are really excellent! There is great movement in each shot and wonderful details in the water.

danrav Larry these are excellent shots. So interesting. It is so amazing to see how clear the axle area is and how much motion is caught in the outer rim area. A study in physics also!!

girafferacing Great use of shutter speed - it produces a wonderful sense of movement.
