This is my first entry, it is a photo that I took at midnight on New Year's Eve in the middle of a raging blizzard. BTW my wife bought me a K100D for Christmas, I must have been a good boy.

Hi all. Here is a thought for my post in this challenge. I just had a friend inlooking at that picture and he made the observation that there are actually two drops in the picture. One coming back out of the water and the darker one coming down from above. That makes more sense, and is probably what really happened. I had assumed it was the one drop coming back up again. Perhaps a physics teacher could look at it and make the final judgement!

Hi, Brian - Welcome from SoCal.

Flaco - very nice reflection - did you use a grad ND filter or were you lucky enough to get the light right, where the reflection and the sky were similar in amount of light? I had missed that point with my puddle picture (my reflection thread), and so really like yours.

Brian lives across town from me and teaches at the same school, in fact he has some of my old lenses as a starter kit.

Wow, a relationship outside of cyber space! Does anyone else know anyone else both in and outside of this forum?

Hey Everybody....thanks for the welcomes. It's great to be a part of this forum. After a few years away from the photography scene, it's good to be back into it again. As Ira said, I have a number ofhis older lenses that I traded my older 35mm gear for and a new Pentax K100d thanks to my wife and Santa, so I'm all set to get back at things. Over time I'll post more of my work.

Cheers

Brian
