Monochrome Madness June 5, 2015 – Lake Wake Water

It’s the first Tuesday of the month so it’s theme day for Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness.  Today’s theme is water.  Below is the water photo I submitted.  It’s the wake from my fiend’s boat on Lake of the Ozarks.

Lake Wake Water


Below are other photos that could qualify for the water theme but I went with the above because it appears to be about 90% water.

This is the lighthouse at South Haven, Michigan. This photo was not taken with my Nikon D7100 but with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 .  At the time my Nikon was still fairly new and I was afraid to take it down to the beach with all the blowing water and sand.  (Lake Wake Water above was also taken with the Panasonic; did not yet have the Nikon.)  The DMC-ZS7 is a nice camera but has limited manual controls with f stops that ranged from 3.3 to just 4.9.  In bright sunlight the Leica zoom lens produces very sharp detailed photos and the macro function produces sharp results with lots of DOF because of the small 1/2.33″ sensor.  That small sensor means that one is pretty limited in how much a photo can be cropped.  Moving from the DMC-ZS7 to the Nikon D7100 was similar to going from a 19″ B&W tube TV to a 48″ HDTV.


This also would qualify for the water theme but I think it would probably be better suited for the theme reflection(s).  These are condos reflected in the shore line at Lake of the Ozarks.


Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Great choice David, the wake contrasted very well in b&w. You couldn’t go wrong with the second one either. The bottom one might be better as you say for a reflections theme but it’s a really good shot as well..
