Wednesday afternoon it warmed up a bit on our back deck and melt water began dripping from the roof. As I watched it, I became fascinated with the slow and random drips and splashes. "What," I wondered, "would the drips look like to a camera?"
Well, it ain't as easy as it might look! But as usual, perseverance and a bit of luck gets you something to work with. The other lesson seen in these is that there are several minute landscapes that could be worth capturing all by themselves; bits of deck wood with water or ice on it. Puddles with splash rings in them. Lots of possibilities limited only by one's imagination.
Here's a few of the results; and the B&W possibilities are yet to be fully explored. Fascinating are the grooves in the redwood and the way the water meniscus forms around obstacles. Find the splash rings and the bits of water in the air.
