I am sorry not commenting today but time has been a little tight.

This shot was taken with me standing in a stream, I knelt down to get lower and sat in the water so the walk back was rather uncomfortable to say the least.

Taken with my ring flash on quarter power as the light was poor and it was shot hand held.

I hope a few of you like it.

Regards. - gary

The effect of the ring flash is extraordinary, and impressive. I wonder what time of day this was taken? It has the effect of little lanterns glowing in the night.

Fine detail from the ring flash, Gary, a well captured image and nearly as good as the mental image of you sitting in the water!! GrinGrin

Well worth a wet rear end when you bring home a shot like this, Gary:: a really fine cluster and so well captured with the ring flash as described, exposure being spot on.
