Earlier this week Jason dug and built a new fish pond in the backyard, upgrading us from a 150 gallon pond to a 2000 gallon pond!  It’s gonna be awesome once we get the landscaping around it, some pond plants and the fish transferred over.  He even bought a rockin’ color changing fountain that is anchored in the middle – oooh pretty!  Once it’s complete I’ll post up some photos of it.

So with the new setup and the pretty colors I tried my hand at some long exposure photography for the first time.  Not bad results for my first go.  I have some ideas for the next attempt and want to wait until the fish are in the pond for one of the things I have in mind.

So here’s a partial view of the new pond, with the purple lights on the fountain at a 15 second shutter.
