I was shooting cloud reflections on water in a stock tank when it started to sprinkle. The breeze had already been gently moving the water when it really got interesting.
The water drop above is just starting to burst upward. If you click on the image, you should be able to see the droplets above it.
Circles radiating from a water droplet are mesmerizing. They draw the human eye in and out, just as ocean waves do. The subject of wave physics is far beyond my grasp, but one of the most accessible reads on the subject is The Wave by Susan Casey. She vividly and deftly combines the science of the big waves called rogues, freaks, and giants with the lives of people who live to surf them.
until next Monday,
a passion for the image
