Assignment 3: Water

For those who may remember, at the beginning of the year I gave out a couple of fun assignments. My goal was to do one every month but life got in the way and I had to attend to other matters. Well, for this month and next, I am going to bring the assignments back. I hope you all jump back in and have some fun with them.

Water is the subject for Assignment 3. Water is unique in that it can be a solid, a liquid and a gas. Water moves, stands still, creates and destroys. Let your creative minds go here. Any photo featuring water as the main subject is allowed. However, I am a Disney fan so let’s keep it G-rated. 😉

The water in Lake George is considered some of the cleanest in the world.

As in the first assignments, do not send me your photos. What I would like you to do is post them on your blog, flickr or other photo sharing site, personal website or any other place on the Internet where you can place a link to it here by making a comment to this blog entry. Then we can visit those sites and enjoy all the great water photography.

Please, have your photos posted by Wednesday, October 21, 2009. Don’t have a place to post? Might be a good time to start up a blog or join a photo community like flickr or Exposure. As I did for Assignments 1 and 2, I’ll put together a recap with my comments.

If you have any questions, leave me a comment and I will be happy to answer them. By the way, I would really appreciate it if you would help spread the word about this so we can get lots of people to participate. Thanks!

    The water is so very clear and beautiful. Gorgeous.

    Well, I don’t know if I qualify. I’ve already taken a good number of lake photos recently and I’ve been posting these with more to come. I love water photos of many kinds…. realistic and abstract.

    Gorgeous photo you have here. I really like the perspective and the eye led to infinity. 🙂


  4. Beautiful image and scene Scott, nicely done !!

    Here is my post, I had a chance to visit Laos in November 2008 and saw the two colors river.

    I love to take photographs. That being said, I have a lot to learn too.
    I started a blog in April of this year after reading so many of the ‘mommy blogs’ out there.
    My kids are older, and I didn’t think I had a whole lot to add, but perhaps I could use it as a way to connect with others learning the art of photography and learn a few things along the way as well.

    I am linking to one of my favorite water shots. Very emotional one for me. I posted it back in April when I first started blogging. It might be one of my biggest downfalls as a photographer.
    I get too attached to the meaning/reason/memory of the subject of the picture instead of looking at the technical aspects of it.

    Okay, here goes …


  7. Here’s mine
    Hopefully it still qualifies, even though not every picture has water in it.

    Another of the Torch Lake Irregulars has weighed in, but I’m saving it for Tuesday. Maybe I’ll get some more, who knows–link(s) to follow. Having fun following links, though. Shades of Norman McLean in Montana. Icy dippers weeping in New York. The very definition of really wet water. A Two Colors River – who knew? Well, lots of people I’m sure, but I didn’t. Now I do. And comparing views of Lake George . . . a person can never look at Lake George too many times.

    The world’s life-giving water. Don’t mess with it. I mean it.

    I’m attracted by the power of water to be both transparent and at the same time reflecting.


  13. Anna Surface says:

    Hi Scott. Thanks for another challenge. I have mine up squeaking in late. LOL Preston will have his up tomorrow. 🙂


  14. Hi ya’ Scott. Sorry about waiting to the last day to turn in my assignment but it comes from conditioning in high school, especially in my English class. Always when I received my English assignment back from the teacher it looked like she had committed suicide over it for as much red ink that was on it. Anyways here is my post:

    Love you falls photos. Here is mine:

    Whenever the weather is not cooperating, I will seek out flowing water!


  16. kanniduba says:

    Here is a link to mine:

    Thanks Scott! 🙂
