sprinklers on the lawn...

As I returned home from walking my dog, the lawn sprinklers turned on. I couldn't resist grabbing my camera and trying to catch the spray.

Yowza - that's fantastic!!! I saw a very similar scene this morning when driving by a cemetery and was so annoyed that I didn't have my camera! Obviously great minds think alike! :-) This is a great shot Dulcie.

@Sarah: Thanks for the great comment. Yup, we are of the same mind...but I'm glad I got there first. ;-) You should really go ahead with your own version, though. They're like fingerprints...the same but different. haha

The treatment takes something mundane and makes it magical.

@bluechameleon: Yes, somehow on this particular day, I was reminded of the same thing...being a kid again in the summertime.

Mom could have used that last week...we have lived in those sprinklers, right?
Wonder how it is in color? Cool as it is, and really refreshing down to my toes
