Saturday Abstraction

Cavalcading yellow

On this somewhat dreary Saturday here in New England, I thought it might be nice to add a spot of bright color to the day.


This yellow flowers of a lovely wild brush caught my eye and gave me the idea that getting them to flow over the edge of a precipice would make them look even more stunning than  they already did.

A bit of experimentation with zoom blur and motion produced the image you see here, which gave me the sense that I was looking for.  Xanthogenesis was the name that came to me fairly quickly, as this is both a creation of yellow and the yellow can also be fancied as the force that creates.

Hope you enjoy this.
