Thanks, Rodney! What one won't do for a shot when one has worked other subjects to death...

That's a lot of work to get a shot of water... but... I'd be right there with you. Creative shot.

Let me explain this just-for-fun photo. The drive gates in my chain link fence have a drop rod that holds them closed, which fits into the hole in the center of this cup, which itself fits into a vertical pipe in the ground. This pipe and cup fill up with rainwater, and because of the impermeability of the clay soil, it can remain there indefinitely. A hard freeze will immobilize the drop rod, making it impossible to open the gate, so I am in the habit of emptying it after a hard rain, even though winter is nearly over now. Because of the hole in the bottom, dropping the cup into the pipe when it's partly empty causes a column of water to leap up through the cup and out the drop rod hole at top. I've been wanting to shoot this for some time and decided today was the day. It would have been a better shot if I could have gotten it from a lower angle, but I was practically lying on the wet gravel as it was, and would have needed three or four hands to accomplish that, LOL!
