A little strange

As we were coming home from Willow Slough, we were passing the power plant that sets on the Wabash River. On the other side of the highway is another smaller power plant that only runs at peak times from my understanding. It stays lit up even if only running with a skeleton crew. It was about 7:00 p.m. and almost totally dark but it is well lit. I thought to myself I would see what a picture would look like from there.

I knew it would be blurred but I thought it would be interesting all the same...I had the lens wide open I am sure...I looked at the info on the picture to get that the shutter speed was 1/5 second. Keep in mind that we were probably going 60 or 65 mph down the road.

I kind of like the image...I keep meaning to do more of this type of stuff but don't think about it till it is the only option. I happened to run across some pictures in my slides a bit back that reminded me that sometimes photos like this can be kind of fun.

I like the blur of the camera movement. You've created an interesting squiggle. Try some more!

At first glance I thought it was a grouping of candles in hurricane globes. It's a great photo! I too like this sort of photography at times....we have some AWESOME time-released photos of an amusement park in slide form that I cannot find....if I can ever lay my hands on them, I plan to post them!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
