It was an overcast day when we climbed a small mountain to this little spring fed pond.

The light reflecting off the water was enough to make these water grasses appear to glow.

By using a polarizer, the glare was cut down on the water, and the roots became visible beneath the surface.

Stumble It!
Digg It!


  1. Great photo. The colors of the grass came out beautifully!

    Happy GTS!

  2. Cool effect. looks like the grass is lit up, very nice!

  3. Cool shot, I like the saturated greens.


  4. Love the rich, bright colours in the grass against the backdrop of water. Neat that the roots could be seen in the water ~ :)

  5. That water looks cold! Brrr..;-)

  6. Rick - even in the hot of summer that water is still freezing - the springs keep it quite chilly!

  7. Such rich greens -- but that water looks cold!

  8. Bobbie - It's very cold water!

  9. I guess I missed you last GTS, so I'll do a "twofer" today. This photo is lovely. What kind of camera do you use? I'm too lazy to use different lenses, and I just like to point and shoot. When I see photos like this--I start thinking maybe I should expand my horizons!

  10. Thanks, Aiyana.

    I used my old Sony CD500 for this shot, and just got in really close - not much of a zoom on it, but it's saving grace is the Carl Zeiss glass in the lens.

    I now use a Sony A100 DSLR, and I love having my choice of lenses back. I missed it with the point and shoot camera. I would definitely encourage you to try different lenses - it opens up a whole new world!
