Experimenting with shutter speeds by the side of the pool one lovely day last summer, I was fascinated with the shapes playing in the waterfalls. Not to wax tooo philosophic, but I think this proves once and for all that we should open our minds to believing in more than what our eyes tell us is reality … because our eyes will NOT see this!!!

This was taken with the Nikon D40x, on manuel at a shutter speed of 1/2000 and ap of f 3.2, iso 100. Taken on June 22, 2008 in Montgomery County, Md.
