Playground Goliaths by FramedByNature Playground Goliaths by FramedByNature
Canon Digital Rebel XSi
18-55mm kit lens

A couple weeks ago, we had a very rainy stretch of weather, so my sunset shoots were replaced with puddle shoots. Rode up to an elementary school and got on the ground next to a puddle to get this shot. Clothes got a bit dirty, but you've gotta do what you've gotta do to get the shot ;)

Please tell me what you think! :dance:

Yo! I don't suppose you'd ever be willing to let someone use it as a stock or background, would you?

 Reminds me of the playground where I went to grade school. Every spring, the field at the back of the playground would flood with melted snow, turning into a foot-deep swamp around the playground equipment back there. Perhaps it was fitting that half of it was on stilts. :P

I bet this made you smile while laying on the ground taking the shot. The colors are amazing and who doesn't love a playground they bring back memories for everyone.☺

It's a very good photo. Everyday's objects made look different by the way they're photographed.And what normally would be a rather unpleasant view- a big puddle in the schoolyard- turns out into an aesthetic and even colorful picture.

Thanks! You just need a puddle and calm winds :nod: I set the focus near the pile of wood chips and used f/18.0 to achieve a deeper depth of field :nod:

the blues against the blacks makes this for me and the wonderful curves of the equipment - your title is fantastic and yes - the reflection with the blades of grass - almost surreal

awesome :+favlove:
