Its that time of year again to go out and get some crack. Just in case you can't go out and get some, I figured I would share mine with you. I'm going to try and do things a little bit different than most and start from the beginning.

Hope you enjoy.

These are indeed addictive. I love the shiny surfaces in the last one. No one seems to mind the symmetry of this kind of shot. I'm also crazy about #3 although I'd be tempted to crop out the green corner. The color and transitions are very cool.

Hey Frank,

Nice work here. I have similar shots of #1, and I like how you captured it. Though in hindsight, I would have suggested that you wet that bit of rock that is dry. Small dry spots always stick out from the glistening wet areas, so I try to wet them if possible. And yeah, I really like your crack in #4, it's a super shot!

Very nice! The reds and yellows work beautifully.

Thanks for the comments.

Didn't even think to wet down the dry spots, I usually try to capture nature as is. Suppose they could be a little distracting to some.

Funny thing is I actually removed some leafs the guy before me lined up/arranged in a very fake way to get his shots.

Here is one more.
