This is an image I caught during a training day this summer.

We were set up around a pond up in SW Washington state, and I was given the job of manning the gunner station, so I wasn't able to take any photos until the change-up. Since Bruce was running all of our dogs that day, I got my camera out and climbed down to water's edge, where I laid on the bank in the hopes of getting some good shots. What with the brush, the wake and the splash factor, I wasn't able to get as low as I would have liked, and the images took a lot of work in Lightroom.

Ironically, this image looked washed out and watered down in color, but came back to life in B&W.
