This was originally taken without the water. The lines are always strong in the early evening. I wanted something else, so I was playing around with loose dirt and the shadows, and concluded that the sprinklers might give the same effect. It worked much better than I had hoped. I didn't plan on the bright highlights from the large concentration of water and sunlight.

This gets more wonderful the more you see it. Was just looking through the challenge photos and came across it again. Gave it an 8 during the challenge, I'd move it to a 9 or 10 now! Wonderfully done!

Very pleased to see something that might normally be considered "too busy" do very well. Gives me hope and inspiration! (Maybe I'll even take my camera out of the bag this week....)

This oddity insists on a ribbon. What a brilliant and myriad fulfillment of the challenge. Posthumous Blue Ribbon.
