and the next theme is.........WATER

Since somewhere between 70-75% of the earth's surface is made up of water, most of us have no shortage of the stuff.  In fact, many of us at this time of year have rather too much of it, so let's make use of that and go for water as our next theme.

You might choose to photograph the ocean, a river, a waterfall, a lake, a fountain, or maybe just a puddle.  Maybe your water might be falling from the sky, as rain or snow, or it might show up in the form of mist or fog.  It might be morning dewdrops, or it might have hardened into ice.  It might be the water you shower under in the morning or the bath you soak in after a hard day, or it might just be the glass of refreshing water you're about to drink.  Maybe you'll find watery reflections, or steam on a mirror or a window.  It could even be a tear running down someone's face, or a wet pavement on a rainy night.  Look around you and notice just how many ways water appears in your life.

Here are some inspirational images of water to get you going.

We look forward to seeing your WATER photos in our Flickr pool.

And remember to join us tomorrow when we start musing on Words - as always, on the last day of the theme we'll be holding our usual linky party where you can add your own links and show us how you've interpreted Words.

I love how many variations there can be on this theme, and the way water can distort, reflect, and enhance all it comes in contact with. Great shots!

That first image is amazing. I saw a face right away. Light-perfect. Looking forward to finding water everywhere.

Hi Gilly,
This will be a great theme with so many ways to venture photographically. I like how you've given everyone lots of ideas - both in and out of the box types :) Some inspiring photo examples to get us in the mood, too!

Great photos and variety! Reminds me of a photography assignment many moons ago during college - take an 8.5 x 11 sheet of plain white printer paper and see how many ways you can photograph it. Gotta love the mental workouts creativity can provide!
