Motion Blur

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge prompt You Pick It!

I thought about some of my experiments since being restricted to what I could do due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Some of the experiments involved using the live composite and the live time settings of my Olympus camera to show motion blur of clouds at dawn and dusk.

As I have been experimenting with motion blur for years I decided to add a couple of earlier images to this post.

Clouds moving across Colpoy's Bay at dawn

A 346 second exposure of clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay, Ontario at dawn in the summer. Taken using a strong neutral density filter on the lens and using the live time feature of my Olympus camera.

A wave breaking on the Georgian Bay, Ontario shoreline at sunrise 35 years ago. The camera was set up on a tripod and the shutter tripped when a suitable looking wave was about to break on the stones.

Splashes and Colour

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: A Splash of Colour prompt.

I initially went with a splash of colour before going with splashes in colour.

Wave Versus Rock x 2

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Words that end in “ock”

I had a few ideas for this challenge and actually went out and took some shots I thought may work for one of the ideas. Then I changed my plans for the post completely.

Living on a limestone peninsula where the bedrock is exposed in lots of locations I thought about rock. There are boulders all around the area and I thought about some of them in the water along the Lake Huron shoreline.

 

Cee's Black and White Photo Challenge: Words that end in "ock"

A slow shutter speed allows the wave to blur as it hits the rock.
