This week's theme is WATER!

Lots of forms of water from oceans to glasses full of it so pick one and show.

I know this was a theme covered a fair while ago but figured there was lots of scope in it.

I've been enjoying all your wonderful photos for ages, and think I've finally figured out how to post an image. Here goes.....

A single drop of water.



Captured just after dawn, a dew drop hanging from a leaf in my garden, last week.

I forgot to say! It is Bondi. I felt very old - there seemed to be nobody there over the age of 25!

Hello Mags - nice pic!

At least, if the rumours are true, you wouldn't have been the only one with an English accent!

My first attempt at a panorama from a phone-cam.


This is Sydney Harbour from Mosman. The city is on the extreme right, and the Harbour Bridge is just out of shot, further right. There are sundry yachts and ferries crisscrossing the water.

Note to self. Do NOT post panoramas again, without also posting magnifying glasses...

How about you post a link to a larger version of the photo, ozzz?

MadMags, your droplet is fantastic!

Can you re-save it in Photbucket at a different size? Looks like a great pic.

I'm going to have to resort to a travel pic again. The other option being a photo of the local sewerage farm!
This is one of my favourites it's of the shores of Lake Khovsgol in Mongolia complete with wooden raft.
One of the most beautiful places in all the world.

I have tried posting a link, and also did all sorts of things in Photobucket (including some swearing), and nothing seems to work.

Because it is basically three photos side-by-side, it would probably bust the left and right borders of this thread, if I could make it bigger.

Any ideas?

Thanks Copago, lily and Santana!

It would be great if you can figure out how to enlarge that photo, ozzz, it looks like a good one.

I like how the texture of the clouds is repeated in the foam of the water, quogequox, and I can see why it is one of your favourites.
