I guess I am just on a theme about dams, but I love photographing them. I was actually at a dam and I was struck by these weathered rocks. They are in the flood zone of the dam, so they get underwater when the water comes out, but until that time - they are rocks in waiting.
I love sun flare. Although some photographers try to avoid them, I seek them out. Flare is caused when you can see the light source and it's patterns. It is special for me when I get a photo that has a little flare.
This was a fun night. I was sitting in the back of my Explorer during a torrential down pour. I was trying to get a picture of a lightening bolt, but on this night it not streaking across the sky, it was popping behind the clouds. I sat with my shutter open to get this pic.
