While walking along the banks of the river Stour with my hairy pal Charlie Bear the other day. I saw the opportunity to attempt this shot I'd had in mind for a while. I had my old Canon 1100d on me and a recently purchased glass crystal ball. The idea was to capture the glass ball with water running off as I lifted it and have the dog refracted in the glass. The light was fading, I didn't have a tripod and Charlie was seconds from wandering off. As a result the composition is far from perfect and the focus is only sort of how I intended. But in one shot with one hand, I think it's worked out quite well. I especially like the double ripple effect in the water, I don't think I could have planned for that.
