My first visit was back back in January 2012, just after I had purchased my Fujifilm HS20.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Transformation

I decided that perhaps responding to the weekly photo challenge in the correct week was actually quite nice, so I thought I’d do it again. So here is my response to this weeks challenge: Transformation. Water is perhaps one of the more obviously changeable things around.
