Day 64 - Melting

Due to the snow and ice I ended up working from home today, but during lunch my wife and I went out adventuring and found this lovely water feature on the golf course while building snowmen.

I would have really liked to have a neutral density filter and do a long exposure, or even a relatively slow exposure, but the sun proved quite fierce reflecting off of the snow and I couldn't take a picture less than 1/800 of a second without closing off the aperture too much.

You can view high resolution images on my flickr.
