Ripples/ Photo Hunter

Raindrops are falling on his head (can you hear the melody?)

This week's Photo Hunter challenge: ripples

As Jacob has pointed out, this photo was NOT taken in East Gwillimbury but at the Toronto Zoo. Good observation, Jacob!

Okay, now you didn't take this in EG, right? Oh, maybe at a zoo?

You're causing ripples in my brain! ;-)

Jacob,
You are too smart! And correct. This was taken at the Toronto Zoo, ;-)

Awwww, I thought Lake Simco had it;s own River Horse. Neat shot and I do hear the music---then again I hear music at odd times too. MB

Carver said...

That's a fantastic shot. I love it!

Heidi said...

I love your picutre. And yes I was singing right along with you. Thanks for stopping by my blog yesterday!

George said...

What a wonderful picture -- complete with the music playing in my head.

Why do I get the feeling I'm going to hum something all weekend?
I'm disappointed that you took this at the Toronto zoo. I thought it was your backyard pond. :-( Seriously, it's a great shot and wouldn't be so great without the ripples!

Glad you told us that this wasn't at Toronto... I was CONFUSED!!!! ha ha

Great photo.
Hugs,
Betsy

Yep, I'm singing it now, although the rain has moved on. Thank goodness. I walked our trails this morning, and found one tree uprooted, and another twisted like a pretzel about 3 ft. up the trunk. SO I guess we did have some strong winds, but I didn't know about it till I saw those trees. Strange weather were having this summer!

Good shot - I can nearly see what he's thinking. (He's thinking: "I love it when it rains.")

YTSL said...

It is a song that never ends, ...

That is going to be stuck in my brain for days now.
I thought maybe you do have lake creatures like this.. pity you don't. :)

lovely capture!

Bim said...

He looks a bit depressed, I think - I imagine that's how I look like when I have to work in the river during a shower. The ripples are very nice though, and so is the rest.

Mar said...

Oh, I am singing out loud now!! and what a great shot of the hippo!!

Hootin' Anni said...

I tried to think of something that was 'different' other than water...

So, HERE is mine The Ripple Effect.
