    Great capture of a classic example of stained glass art. I have always loved the effects of color and light in this medium.

    Mine to start. Both from Penn Cove on Whidbey Island in Washington State.

    Those are buoys, not dust/dirt.

    Thanks Dale, Your shot with the seaweed overlaying the rock is like natures shrink-wrap. nice shot! If it were on a darker rock it wouldn't have captured the same luminance. Great texture contrast too with the smooth seaweed and the rough rocks.

    The bubble is the only truly transparent thing in these photos, the hollyhock and white flowers are translucent, but i think there still close enough. BTW the hollyhock photo is not edited, it was just illuminated by the sun at that angle

    The bubble is very cool! My favorite is the way you caught the sunlight through the hollyhock with the ant. The flower is glowing vibrantly and the little ant was an unexpected surprise... nice!


    - can someone tell me how to get the photos to show in my quote? Thanks.

    The Tacoma Museum of History is connected to the Chihuly Museum of Glass by , oddly, the Bridge of Glass. The walls hold works of glass art by Dale Chihuly and the ceiling is made up of these tiles. There are 2,364 works of glass art suspended in it. Some day I'm going to shoot each panel and put them together in PhotoShop.

    I love the colors and geometric shapes in this picture. Very nicely done, Dale. Here's my contribution from today's outing. It is not as colorful or artistic, however. It's a picture of a stagnant pond along the roadside, with algae below the surface coupled with a reflection of a nearby tree.

    I've had a very similar picture of water reflecting trees with the leaves under the water showing really clearly, too. I like what you have here, too.

    I finally have contributions for this challenge from last night's high school football game shoot. I'm not sure which one I like better. I personally like the first better, but my wife liked the second more. So I'm posting both to see what the rest of you think. These were shot through the transparent drum.

    I like it, too. Very nicely timed and done. The look on her face makes the photo.
