I really can’t believe that thing can float!!

Was trying out some long exposure shots at the lake by my house this morning. Will need to wait for another morning for a great sky.

    Greetings Vikram; The color of the water and that it is smooth as glass make a stunning work of art. Beautifully seen and captured.

  • Cheers Steve!! Thank you so much for your kind words and support!

    I really like the colour of the water. But what makes it green? Either way, another great capture. Nicely composed and the long exposure creates a lovely effect here :)

  • Thanks Shelly – it’s green algae that has this take on an unbelievable shade of green.

    Beautiful shot.

    Too bad the water is so polluted and there is trash in and around it.
    But, you can always say that you live near a green space! ;-P

  • ROTFL!!! Nat!!!
