Liquid (151/365)

The Fox River in Illinois, USA was a near-flood stage when I took these photos at the dam.

I like the satiny smoothness of the river water flowing smoothly over the dam in photo #2. In photo #3 I like the different textures and light reflections.

To understand the context of these river photos, refer to the last photo. In the foreground you have the mascot of the Fox River and in the background you see the water flowing over the dam.

Fantastic set! I love that you took the time to experiment with different shutter speeds and effects. It's tough to pick a favorite, but #3 has such a lovely abstract quality to it. Just beautiful!

Thank you Bethany! I had just gotten the new zoom lens one day before so I was definitely in the experimentation mood! It was hard to choose what to post since I had shot in burst as well. I'm so glad you like them.

Thank Camellia - indeed, I though #2 and #3 with their flow really express "liquid", as in "liquid movement"

Great shots!!! Love the stop-action of the water flow in 1-3 and the perspective in the last one! Nice work!

Thanks Jay! It was a lot of fun and hard to choose which of the "splash" photos to post
