Photo Friday: Showing Motion

May 19, 2017

If you like doing photo assignments, or challenges, this came from the Art of Photography on YouTube.  They are worth looking at.  This challenge is to convey motion in a still image.  I’ve done this before, but the shot I took this morning was worth sharing.  I just happened across this snowy egret in Mill Cove, and waited for it to start flying; they are so graceful.  I was able to keep the eye in recognizable focus, while blurring the rest.

Day 47: What Comes Natural

February 9, 2012

What Comes Natural

 

Wings start to flutter

Then glide effortlessly

Through the air.

Hovering

Then disappearing in a blur

Making flight look easy

But only because

You were made that way.
