I took this shot and it turned out like this.
I took the one below it-and it looks entirely different. I don't know what I did. Maybe metered with the sun and without. There are SO many variables... ugh.
I thought, "Self. It is nice to get the sun in the water-but lets add a ripple effect for some variation" so I chucked a stone into the pond. You know for ripples. (If I would have been good, I would have captured the 20 or so frogs that hopped hysterically to land when I came close...)
Only when I was home did I realize that somewhere between the THROW and the ripples, I snapped another picture. Cool. Always a perk, eh?
