Dangerous Waters by Handie Dangerous Waters by Handie
Taken last summer - BEFORE the spring flooding of this year. I'm not even sure I can get to this place now. I should go out and check soon.

I had named this piece Rained Out to begin with but Kim pointed the shark out to me, so I just HAD to change it!!!

Thanks Kim!! I dedicate this one to you!!! :iconlacrimaererum:

WOW!! A DD!! What a wonderful surprise!!! I'd like to thank :iconunderthewildmoon: for suggesting it, and :iconanoya: for featuring it! Thank you so much ladies! You've made my whole day!! :tighthug:

For those who are doubting that this is a real cloud shark - I guarantee you that I have not photo shopped this shark into the picture! I'm not that good at photoshop!! I have posted another photo from the same shoot in my scraps as proof of a real cloud shark!!

Suggester said; "This is an absolute must see. The eruption of an angry sky and the calm before the storm. A soothing, inspirational and exceptional piece."

Not to forget about the shark-like cloud!

Heeeeeey!! Brian!! there you are!! I was thinking today at work (what better place to be thinking at??) that I haven't seen you in a while and that I was going to come and leave a message on your page along the lines of:

You haven't been around for a while. I hope that means that you are doing something wonderfully wicked such as spending a week nekkid water skiing with a team of hot Russian women.

So.....?? How was it?? Hope the water was warm... otherwise that could be embarassing.. you know.... being nekkid and all ;)

Thanks hun :hug:

aaaah- well, that sounds about as good!! Glad to hear you guys were able to get away on a photo expedition! Hey - I watched a video the other day of a guy shooting moon bows from the TOP of that watefall! It was scary as hell - but really a good watch!

So does this mean that you will be posting some new shots soon?? :woohoo:

I IMMEDIATELY noticed the shark before even reading the title or description. HOW DID YOU NOT SEE THE SHARK?! I thought that was the entire reason you took this picture!!! :wow:

Handie Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2011  Hobbyist Photographer
You know.. I have NO IDEA how I didn't see the shark right away!! I can't believe I missed it - I'm usually looking at things and noticing the shapes but I must have had my blinders on with this one!!! It was just a lucky co-incidence!!!
