Smith Park Pond

Smith Park Pond

Smith Park Pond in Bloomington, MN

From the dock that extends onto the pond in Smith Park, I took this picture looking into the sun. Onlookers were watching as I leaned over and kept moving up and down, back and forth. I wanted the sun partially blocked by the blade of grass. However, the wind was blowing and the camera kept shifting focus, so I had to work at getting the shot. I imagine folks were wondering what I was up to as I bobbed and weaved looking through the viewfinder.
