It was raining most of the day today here in the San Luis Valley - while my husband and I went out for a drive I saw this sprinkler going in the pouring rain. What a waste of our ground water to be watering a field that is already a soggy mess!

I really like this picture. It gives off a very dreary feeling, and the fact that it doesn't have any actual white in the image creates a pleasant effect IMO. Good job,

Nice concept, wish there was a way to make it more obvious, the spray I mean.

Maybe what your title says happened but the viewer has no way of seeing that from your photo. Basically a dark photo.
