Trees in the Tatras

I wanted to capture some trees during my trip to the Tatra mountains in Poland…trees with the mountains as background, and also use of ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) to emphasise those straight, slender Spruce trunks.

So, on a misty, wet day, here are some mountain views, with those trees as foreground. These were taken from a very jerky horse drawn cart, and I had quite a job to get a sharp image!

rounding a corner with the light in a different direction, we can see the snow

And here are some ICM images of some Spruce trees on the edge of a wood, lower down the mountains on the previous day

  1. love both ways of seeing but am a real sucker for ICM – Spruce in motion – gorgeous (presume you did the up and down movement?!)

      But of course! However, on previous occasions, with different subjects, I have moved the camera from side to side, or swung it about!

  2. That worked well, Sue. Shame about the weather you had, though it does make the mountains and forest feel atmospheric.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. Interesting technique looks as though you are whizzing by at 100 kms/hr

  4. I love the third photo especially, Sue. It’s quite magical. 🙂

  5. These are great. I love the first one though the last two are very interesting.

  6. I agree with Cathy. The third shot is fabulous, like a painting.

  7. Fascinating photo experiment, Due! But I would prefer the first two pictures. I guess it is my bias against the abstract.

  8. Out of step as usual, I was just thinking how lovely the first two ‘natural’ shots, Sue, but I’m not a great fan of the abstracts. Can’t please everyone, hon. So long as you please yourself. 🙂 🙂

  9. That’s a unique perspective!

  10. Love those – you know I do

  11. A beautiful set, both abstract and otherwise. The essence of the Tatras.
