Motion and Movement

This is my contribution to Ann-Christine’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Weird and Wonderful prompt.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before realising that two of them involved motion blur and intentional camera movement.

So I decided to go with a small selection of motion blur and intentional camera movement shots.

One Word Sunday: Count

Intentional camera movement of trees on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Buff and Black Webbing

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Words starting with B or W prompt.

I was trying to come up with a two word title using B and W while attaching one of my quick connect camera straps to a camera before going for a walk.

Common Hazel flower

Flora and Fauna Friday this week is the second part of my posts on the Common Hazel (Corylus avellana).

Last week my post was about the male Common Hazel catkins that produce the pollen to fertilise the female flowers.

This week my post is about the female flowers. The flowers are tiny, the entire bud in this photo is approximately the size of the head of a match. The red styles that form the visible part of the flower are 1 to 3 mm long.
