This is a picture taken freehand without a tripod. I was practicing taking shots with my camera that I had only had for about a week at this time. We put this pond in ourselves as a gift for my Mother and Father. When we come over to visit now we all like to sit around it and talk. It a small peace of heaven to us in the city around us. I hope this picture inspires others to install a pond if you have been thinking about they are a great addition to your yard.
