Picture This Challenge 177 - Water in Motion

Hi all, Baz here in the guest chair this week, I was honored when Mitch called and asked if I would be the first guest host here in the Picture This  new home, as many of you know PT has a very special place in my heart  as a founder member many years ago. 

Its wonderful to see it still up and running successfully after so many incarnations, a tribute to Mitch and the team of Admins. Congrats to them on a wonderful job done on finding a place to be PT new home.

OK down to business, the rules the same as always, 3 of your favorite images that fit the theme, they can be new or from your archive but only 3 please.

The size I have used below is about the size you should use so the page is not distorted.

Don't forget to post by copy/pasting HTML from Flickr or Photobucket. Please do not upload from your puter direct to the PT site.

Fine, that's the house work done LOL.

For the theme I have chosen one of my favorite subjects "WATER IN MOTION" and three shots from three of my all time favorite shoots, the first two images have not been posted before, the third I have shown once I believe.

1) is the head waters of the Mississippi River in Itasca State Park Minnesota. 

2) is Dark Hollow Falls in the Shenandoah State Park, Blue Ridge Mountains, Virginia.

and 

3) is the classic surfing beach at Bournemouth UK, taken from  Bournemouth Pier.

I look forward to seeing all your shots over the course of the following week, have a great weekend;) BazItasca State Park 081_A090062Z0018912

  1. Hi Baz!! Many thanks for being our first guest-host on the new PT site!!! Great theme you've chosen, a lot of scope for different types of shot. I've got a few in mind already.

    Nice shot of the Mississippi headwaters, I think I've seen that one before back on Multiply. Fabulous shot of the waterfall, I love the 'flow' effect you have captured. The surfer is just a superb action shot!! There's so much movement going on, both the surfer and the water. I'm looking forward to seeing what folks come up with for this!!

  6. Wonderful Theme, Baz and great shots. I must somehow have missed the update, as only saw the post now ......mmmmmmmmhhhmmm, nearly thought Baz had forgotten, must look into that.
    Great shots, Baz, I battle with water in motion, so now the brain is all helter skelter what to do. Might have to shoot from new, just for fun, mmmmhhhm, any hints??
    A bit late here now. Will try to post tomorrow.

  10. My computer is acting funky, but I love this theme! The surfer shot is amazing. Looks like moses parting the red sea on his surf board.

  11. Fantastic shots. Great theme. The surfer looks like he will be swallowed by the sea! I always admire the falling water shots like yours. How do you do that?
