That's an incredible photograph!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Have you ever studied photagraphy? Judging by the great quality of that photo I would think that it was created by someone trained in very advanced photography courses.  It follows all of the rules that create an amazing photograph, such as complementary mixed with anagaligous colour scheme, spatial composition based on the perfect grid based on the golden mean, and many other things that all great photographers strive for in their photographs.

No, no formal study.  I was just talking about that photo to a student, though.  I told her that photography had three aspects.  Being in the right place at the right time, and being able to see it are the two most important.  The third involves knowing your equipment.

That was a no brainer moment; when I stepped up to the view, everything was already set up.  I just pointed and shot.

Thanks, by the way!

Wow! Gorgeous!

There is another factor in making great photos:  what you do after you take the photograph.  Traditionally, that meant modifying negatives during the development process.  Now it means the judicious use of software such as Photoshop on digital photographs.  Ansel Adams, the great photographer, was also a great innovator, teacher, writer, conservationist, and pianist.  He said that the negative of a photograph is like the score in music.  Developing the photo, like playing a musical score, is artistry.

Yes, Pauline!  That's exactly it!  Someday, I will sit down and write about all the musical landscapes I saw this summer; better yet, I will play them!

Beautiful photo, Emily.  Question:  what  do you guesstimate is the temperature of the water?

Hmm, I don't know.  Our well water is an even 39 degrees F year round.  I bet it's somewhere in there.
