Shapes and patterns light painting challenge, top ten

A light-painted waterfall on the steps of a grotto.

No edits, as-shot.

Used a light-wand with multiple gels and a single flash to light the steps. Open shutter, fire flash manually, paint the lower splash area, then the steps from bottom up following closely along the rock face, close shutter. 1 minute total.

Canon 7D, bulb mode, f/22, 59 sec, ISO-100, 28mm

I am self taught, with an imagination that will not stop. I started drawing as a kid, and dabbled with correspondence art school but never took art in high school or college because I felt it might constrain me. I was wrong, but no crying over spilled milk.

    This is tip top my man. One of the most unusual images I have seen here on RB. Instant fav. for sure and a challenge winner in the correct group I will bet. Well done to you.

  • Wow, thanks for that great comment Derek. I too was so pleased when I got back to the camera and saw how this one (of 20 or so attempts) came out. This was completely experimental for me and worked out well. Now, just gotta find the right contest!
