That's a wow! It seems like ink or watercolour.
Kathryn: Funny how a little movement and light can do that huh?

It's nice to be back to visiting your photos, Kathyrn. Great movement in this shot! Was this done by moving the zoom during the shot or moving the camera?
Kathryn: Thanks, Jewlya and welcome back. It was taken from a moving car in addition to using zoom.

…it’d love to fly away,
this lonely leafless tree,
but roots said: “No way,
we won’t set you free”.
And lonely tear got frozen on a lonely branch, but no one noticed.
Kathryn: Sad how lonely frozen tears can go unnoticed.

Terrific textures! Very inspiring.
Kathryn: Thanks, Dave. The question what does it inspire you?
this one literally blows one away, inspiring photography!!
Kathryn: Patrick, a master of word puns, I see. Shall I borrow some of Mark V's rope to tie you down and make sure you are not blown too far?
Great abstract Kathryn, and a wonderful movement, I can feel the speed smile
Kathryn: Thanks much, Flo. Careful about taking things too fast.
Glad you are back Kathryn. I've missed your pictures. Love this one
Kathryn: A temporary relapse Bill. And speaking of pictures, a day or so ago, I peeked in on yours and love the series of tree pictures. They are painting like and just fantastic.
Kathryn, this is great! Powerful and dynamic. (:o)
Kathryn: Thanks, Roz--just a little movement can do many things to alter perspective.
You announce your return with a grey, blustery, gloomy image of winter... as if we need a reminder ... Humph !!!!! Fantastic image K' and a wink from me. richard
Kathryn: A wink back to you, R. A temporary return as I am still in sunny, warm, happy Florida. I just blew in for a moment.

Kathryn: Well then I kind of thank you smile Power is an illusion, Astrid.
Wecome back and a happy new year to your Kathryn.
Very nice shot. The tree seems to have been ruffled by the wind.
Kathryn: Ruffled by the wind or perspective.

Mountain bike racing, single track, going fast downhill...this is something like the image you receive in your peripheral vision, just the moment before you get a painful smack in the face from a low-hanging branch.
Been there...done that...

Super image, Kathryn.
Kathryn: You've got it, Ray, The movement of the person, the static of the surroundings---all effecting perspective---until you meet head-on.

art and reason. it takes an f4 to bring the two together smile welcome back Kathryn. hope you are well.
Kathryn: "F4 - Wind speed 207–260 mph
Devastating damage (well-constructed
houses leveled; structures with weak
foundations blown away some distance;
cars thrown and large missiles generated."

That sounds about right, Terry smile

Thanks for the welcome. I am better than worse so no complaining here. How are you?

Fantastic sense of movement. It almost looks like the tree has just been blown in from outer space! Welcome back and a Happy New Year. Looking forward to seeing what you have in store for us.
