Water, water everywhere.
I have had just about enough of water, as I have mentioned in my last few posts. I don’t mean to whinge but it has been a very wet spring with our annual rainfall usually 985mm a year. So far this year we are already well over 1200mm with almost 3 months of the year still to go!
This week’s photo challenge, hosted by Lignum Draco – H2O asks us to experiment with water. He has used an excellent photo of the Sydney Opera House taken during the Vivid Light festival which has captured the rain as trails rather than droplets. He is a very talented photographer! I, on the other hand, am not!
But it just so happens the other day I was out walking in the forest and I took this simple shot of bubbles in a runoff area of rain water. The water had banked up and created these bubbles in the puddle. I loved the bubbles but the photo was nothing to write home about.
I decided to play around with the photo and used the Over app on my phone to create a different sort of look for my bubbles. I love the science fiction feel they now have in this edited photo.
I must admit to having a good imagination and am currently reading some fantasy novels so I think the ‘out of this world’ idea came about due to a collision of these two forces.
You might think differently to me and that’s fine. I like my ‘souped up’ bubbles and think they fit in with the theme for this week’s photo challenge quite nicely. I was experimenting with water so I’m pleased to share it with you!
If you’d like to see some real flowing water head over to my post The Waterfall which features not only my poem about the waterfall but also a video of the actual waterfall!
