Rock Skipping at Sunset

July 18, 2018  •  Leave a Comment

Caesar Creek State Park, near Waynesville, Warren County, OH, is a favored place to watch colorful sunsets.  On this day, I encountered difficulty finding foreground subjects do the reservoir’s high waters.  Not wanting to see a colorful sunset go to waste, I tried to improvise a foreground subject by creating a successful set of ripple marks from a skipped rock.  After practicing my technique and then synchronizing my throw with the camera’s timer, I caught this peaceful image.

The subsequent chase led me to Caesar Creek where I discovered the high-water levels submerged all known potential foreground subjects. Not wanting to yield this spectacular sunset due to poor composition, I elected to skip rocks across the surface creating a leading line towards the setting sun.
