Photographic Challenge

How hard could it be to get pictures of water dropping from an icicle? It turned out to be much more difficult than I expected.

The icicle hung near the picture window by my computer.

Many drops would fall from the melting icicle at a time and other times single ones. Some of the falling ones became orbs in the focused image. I’d take the picture’s and the drops had all fallen below the camera’s image. I took picture after picture. Still no luck. I even focused the camera, closed my eyes and took the picture.

Then I thought maybe things would go better if I named the icicle. That there might be more cooperation if I did.

So, meet Elvira.

The name immediately popped in my mind. Don’t ask me why.

I then used the focus camera-close eyes- take picture method.

It was more fun and it worked.

Imagine my surprise when I captured 3 drops in one picture!
