100/366 - "The Horse and The Goose"

(F/16, 100mm, 1/200 sec, ISO 100, Canon 5D Mk II)

I have wanted to do a water drop photograph for a while now and today was the day.  It took me about 15 minutes to get the setup the way I wanted it.  Then I took about 90 photographs or so to get the timing and colors I wanted.

As I went through all the photographs rating them to weed out the duds, this one caught my eye.  I saw the shadow behind the column of water immediately and to me it looks like a horse.  As I kept looking at this photograph I noticed that the column of water actually looks like a goose coming up out of the water with its mouth open.  I have other examples that have a better splash or column of water but this one with the unintentional animal shapes is my favorite.  There will be more of this to come now that I know how to do it.

On another note, I will be without internet for a few days so I will not be posting photographs for a few days.  I will be taking photos each day and will get caught up later this week.

Jim loves water drops and sent in a guest post seen below.  I am sure when I do this theme again he will send another guest post.  I love the colors.
