[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was a good day to capture water dripping from an icicle outside my sister's patio door.
The drips were not coming at a regular rate; 8-seconds, then 4, then 7, then 2 in rapid succession.
I simply set the shutter to continuous, and ISO high enough for a quick shot.
After dozens of images and only 8 drips captured, I set about converting this one picture to greyscale, trying various formats (Lab colour works best).
Look closely and you'll see a tiny drop of water above the big one. It is present in nearly every image.

Hi John -
This is very interesting shot. You presented this very nicely. It looks like a frozen snow melting down. I liked the effect on what you did.
Have a great 2009!

It looks like a exclamation mark
