“Freezing” is the name of this photograph and it was taken on a walk in Bowring Park. I stood very close to the small waterfall which was partially ice covered and using my telephoto lens I zoomed in and took several shots. This is the result. The fast shutter speed captured the small drops of water.
This image is 1/1250 of a second. It is amazing how much one can see when everything is in slow motion.

Gorgeous! Hard to believe what we would miss without the possibility of short exposure! Hard to imagine how beautiful water can be... Hard to find a special motif with so much dynamic and shapes in it!! Very well realised...
It looks so refreshing. Maybe a shot for the TE members on the southern hemisphere sweating in their summer:)

Wonderful job Jim. In agreement with AandK, you don't come by good photos of moving water with fast shutter speeds. Although there is so much more detail then any fast shutter speed photo would have. There are many textures and forms of water for such a small zoomed in part. You have a great eye to catch such a shot. TFS Giuseppe
