Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 119

Whispering breezes

Welcome to the 119th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  Another wonderful week of responses!

All of your posts were a delight to read both because of their creativity and the thought that you put into them.  Their were numerous interpretations of the theme Wind, each one of them interesting and beautiful.  Thank you for a great set of entries, and I hope that you’ll enjoy reading each one as much as I did!

Here’s another view of the wind…

Autumn Winds

This image also came from a nice walk through Tower Hill Botanic Garden, as Autumn was in full swing with its rich color palette!  The breeze through the leaves gave me an idea for a slightly different technique to capture the wind…

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Wind

The long and winding road

Welcome to Week 119 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  What an amazing array of responses to last week’s theme of Play!  Thank you all!

Looking for a follow up to last week’s theme, I was poking around and checking whether or not I had used the theme before.  I came across a tag that I’d used, but not for a TPC theme: Wind!  One thing that I like about this theme is that it can be taken into multiple directions!  It can be the Wind that provides a gentle breeze on a hot Summer’s day, or the road that Winds its way to your door.  And there are other possibilities that your creative interpretations can use this week!

Have fun with this one and share your ideas!  I know that I look forward to your cool ideas and I’m sure everyone else will be just as eager to see your posts!

Here’s one time that the wind caught my eye…

This wind spinner caught my eye, and made me think that it would be fun to do a bit of creative photography by playing with the shutter speed.  It came out pretty pleasing to my eye!

The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
  • Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
  • Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
  • Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!

I’m looking forward to seeing what winds up filling your posts!

A blaze of color!

Continuing in the theme set by the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge of ‘Abstract’, it’s time for yet another interpretation with loads of color!

This is one of my earlier digital images, as I took this one in 2005, while I was photographing an agility trial.  It was a nice breezy day and I had noticed this little wind spinner and figured it might be fun to experiment how it would look at different shutter speeds…  This was the one that I liked best!

Hope you like it too!

Technical Details

This was shot using a Canon EOS 1D Mk II and an EF 70-200mm f/2.8L lens. The exposure settings for this image were 1/20 second at f/20 and 100 ISO.
