Thursday’s Special: Slow

Created with ICM (intentional camera movement) and a slow shutter speed, on my return from the old decaying cars in the forest:

Tall trees against the clouds

Linked to Thursday’s Special over at Paula’s here.








  1. I love that Sue.
    Did you use a tripod / monopod or have you just got steady hands?

  2. Worked really well. Spot on, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. lovely composition, Sue

  4. Smarty pants! 🙂 🙂

  5. Look it up on a dictionary , please ( if you don’t know this word…) CAPOLAVORO!

  6. Beautifully captured, Sue! 🙂 [I’m so glad to be back!]

  7. I like it, Sue, even if there’s not enough sky and it’s not perfect. Ha!!! I should never read the other comments and responses before commenting. I guess there’s an acronym for everything: ICM.



    • Sue

      Thanks, Janet…and there’s too much sky. I should have found a denser clump of trees! Hey ho. …

      • Oh, no, I meant too much sky. Shucks. I can’t even make a spoof comment correctly. 🙂 Hope you’re doing well and your day’s gone wonderfully despite too much sky. I’ve been watching the Tour de France and I think all the other teams think there’s too much Sky, as well. If you’re not a fan, that’s the team of the leader of the Tour and the leading team as well. ‘Nuf said. ‘Bye.

      • Sue

        Oh, Janet, you have made me smile! My day has been good thanks, how about yours?

      • Hot, but good, Sue. I think that statement will be valid for the next ten days or so. 🙂 I’m thankful to have air conditioning.

      • Sue

        I’m sure! How hot is hot where you are?

      • It’s been about 90 F and humid, not a great combination. I’d be happy if it never got above 75. 🙂

      • Sue

        I’m with you there – 90F is 32C, way too hot for me

  8. That is absolutely fabulous Sue. Would make a great abstract print for textiles.

  9. Love doing and seeing these, I like the too much sky, nice contrast and gives scale to the trees.

  10. Beautiful photo. Did you experiment with the amount/speed of movement?

  11. Clever! A beautiful impression.

  12. Sue, this is so beautiful. I LOVE IT 🙂 Thank you!
