An impression of trees, part three.

After experimenting with deliberate camera movement during exposure earlier in the year I had another experiment on a Sunday morning walk.

This experiment was different in a couple of ways. Firstly, the leaves are now off the trees so there is less colour but the trees are more graphical shapes with the bare branches.

Secondly, for my earlier experiments I had been using short telephoto lenses. For this shot I went in the opposite direction and used my fisheye lens. A fisheye lens has an ultra wide angle of view with strong visual distortion towards the edges of the photos.

I find it interesting that the tops of the trees are curved inwards due to the distortion of the fisheye lens but that the branches streak outwards due to the camera movement. It was an exposure of 1/3 of a second while panning the camera vertically.
