Nature Show "Contre-Jour"

That's just gorgeous, Ken.
Thanks much.

Back in the early 90s there was a journalistic craze of backlit splash shots -- kids in sprinklers, water skiers, cannonballers, etc. They won a lot of awards, so everybody learned how to make them. The key is contre jour and a dark background. Expose for the shade.

When that dog jumped out of the river, walked up the bank and stopped, dripping wet, right between me and the morning sun, I was ready. I knew it would be good if I could pull it off.
