I don't understand...where are the circles? Did you post in the wrong forum?

I love that song - is the lake the circle? I believe imperfect circles were fair game. Good thing this is unbroken, too! Or it wouldn't be a circle... it'd be a flood! Nice break from the normal circle!

Hello Calr and Monkey43...

Thanks for your posts

This lake has wonderful reflections near dusk but the winds were up a bit last evening when I took the photo.

Yes, the lake is an imperfect circle...not unlike a "perfect" circle of string which, with a gentle nudge of a forefinger, is transformed into an "imperfect" circle.

One other thing...if you put your nose to your monitor, you may see a very faint series of concentric circles in the lower right, "quiet" area of the water. (Dont forget to wipe that noseprint off afterwards or you may needlessly be doing a recal on your monitor!)

These circles resulted from a stone flung by this forum member who, whilst stone was airborne, quickly brought camera to eye with a hope to catch "the moment".

File size is about 2.5 MB. When viewed in 1:1 magnification, the concentric circles are easily visible.

All in all, it may be best be described as a "well-intentioned effort" and no more.

Oh yeah...mental note...this forum memberneeds to find a BIG, HONKIN' ROCK and try this photo again!

Go for the big, honkin' rock, Digcamfan! Once you pointed out the the rings, I saw them. It's a wonderful idea well worth the re-do. Can you get closer without jeopardizing the camera? If so, it may be what's needed. I'll be happily waiting on dry land for the results.
