Canon EOS REBEL XS, Canon 50mm 1.8 II lens, ISO 800, f/2.8, 1/1250 sec
  A little break from the norm in today's post. It does have water in it though.
  My daughter asked me yesterday if we could go down to the river and cool off.  On Father's Day, who was I to turn her down.
  My only stipulation was to be able to take some photos of her while she was swimming.  The budding young model that she is was not opposed to that at all.
  She started splashing water at me and it jogged a memory of a photo I saw somewhere of a girl flipping her hair back out of the water with the water trail following.  I asked Jocy to do this and she cooperated very well.  The fast 50 came in handy by being able to shoot at 1/1250 sec and stopping the action.
  Back to the river and waterfall action in the next post.


  1. That's really neat, great shot.

  2. I know the shot you mean Jerry and this does it justice. The water droplets are amazing, was this without flash? I'm guessing it was from the speed.

  3. Perfect capture Jerry. I would have gotten it all wrong, as I would have thought to need a slower shutter speed to get all the drops.
