Here’s a mermaid I drew while procrastinating.
Some coral. With an eel. Because coral alone is boring. It needed an eel.
(Coral is really boring to draw. Like, REALLY boring.)
The folklore around will ‘o the wisps is that they lure nighttime travelers out into the swamp where they get lost, sometimes forever. So, here’s a naughty little will ‘o the wisp luring a boy into trouble.
Here’s the same image as a night scene with the aurora borealis.
Heritage Park in Overland Park, KS.
I took this a few weeks ago during a light rainstorm. Unfortunately, my shutter speed (1/25 sec) wasn’t nearly fast enough to capture the ripples without blurring. Even at this size, sized for the web, the blur is apparent. That’s pretty bad. The light was too low and I was having trouble getting the image bright enough. I had the iso set at 800, but in retrospect, I should have set it even higher so I could have gotten that shutter speed up. Oh well, too late now.
