Raindrop ripples

BLACK AND WHITE – Runner-up

I had photographed the reflections of vegetation surrounding this particular lake a number of times. I knew that what I really needed to bring the shot to life was light rain and a day without wind. The concentric ripples from the raindrops added strong interest and gave the reeds a distorted,
impressionistic look.
