1-2-15 New Sparkle

If you see something that looks like a star
And it’s shooting up out of the ground
And your head is spinning from a loud guitar
And you just can’t escape from the sound
Don’t worry too much, it’ll happen to you
We were children once, playing with toys
And the thing that you’re hearing is only the sound of
The low spark of high-heeled boys

Jim Capaldi and Steve Winwood

The weekly challenge is New

The Travel Theme is sparkle

How often have we seen a shot like this ending some apocalyptic movie and heralding the NEW dawn of a SPARKLING bright day on a reborn planet where somehow only the good things and animals/people survived.

This weeks challenge is: Texture. (You knew that)

A little change in ISO and a little change in shutter speed certainly changes the texture of the water in Blackfish Creek.
