About Today’s Photo:
Often on a sunny day, I’ll walk along Fargo Brook and capture images of the water falling in the sunlight. I learned—quite by accident—that a shutter speed of around 1/30″ will create a magical painterly effect in the water as the sunlight bounces of the flowing surface and into my lens. I call it “cellophane” water, or water “squiggles”. The effect never ceases to amaze me.
