This is a classic example of being in the right place at the right time.
This was shot in my back yard. I've spent plenty of time here and know it like the back of my hand.
But I'd never seen the sprinkler running with the sun light streaming through the drops like this.
This could only happen at this time of year, at this time of day.
And it had to coincide with the timer on the sprinklers, the position of the sun, and the leaves on the trees...
So I ran in and got my camera, then snapped a few shots with varying shutter speeds.
This was my favorite shot and, so, is today's PAD.
