too alarming now to talk about, take your pictures down and shake it out, truth or consequence, say it aloud, use that evidence, race it around
my visit to norsey wood with dee was the first time i truly saw her in her element - and it turns out her element of choice is water. all of our previous walking trips had been in a local park which is lacking in any significant bodies of water. the last time i was down in her patch we switched things up and took a walk near the river. she didn't hesitate to rush straight into the water and await her orange ball. i noted that every third or fourth exit from the river resulted in a quick water shake so i tried to predict the optimum camera angle, focal length and timing to capture this. it was a tricky combination with predictably erratic results - but i'm pretty happy with how this shot turned out - and i'm sure dee wouldn't complain if i return to the water with her from some future photoshoots.

i implemented a bit of hdr to this image for the first time in ages, along with some other colour effects, which changed the look quite a bit - here's the original
