    Pool under Oak

    I have been walking in this park for 15 years and just discovered this pool under a beautiful old oak tree.
    So far it is resisting my attempts to make a photograph!

    I made the first on the day I discovered it, after my dog got done splashing around in there!
    With 5 minutes it was underexposed but I still like it.
    I came back a week later and made another for 30 minutes, but the paper had slipped in my camera. That never happens!

    I'll be back again, I walk there a couple times every week.

    Waiting for dogs to stop splashing about is a recurring theme in my photography!

    I really like both these images. The scene and the composition are great and each image has its own distinctive mood.

    I'm eager to see what you come with at this site next.

    I like the location, as well as the camera and the framing. I am contemplating adding rise/fall to a dozen can cameras. These are instructive images for helping me decide how far off the equator to locate a rise/fall aperture.
