January 2010 Theme: The Elements / by Craig Roberts

With January's theme, 'The Elements', I figured I would have lots of time and opportunity to find something to fill the subject - but December rolls around and I still do not have anything compelling to work with. I have two weeks off between Christmas and New Year's, and a trip to Kelowna where there is always snow ... but not this year! Finally I came across this barrel while in Richmond yesterday, and really liked the reflected tree branches with the ripples from the rain.  Deliberately shot out of focus, then some minor color adjustments in post.
