Have to admit that this month’s Picture This Photo Contest at Gardening Gone Wild is a bit daunting. The whole idea is to use purposely long exposures to show blur and motion. I’m not a technical expert, so I appreciated the nudge to stretch a little. I’ve discovered that there are things I can do with a tripod and long exposures just about the time I usually put the camera away in the evening.
I’ve always been a fan of ornamental grasses precisely for the element of motion they bring to the garden. So Sunday evening, I tried my best to capture some motion on a variegated miscanthus. Lots left to learn.
For some reason, this old favorite makes sense for Father’s Day and the approaching solstice. Not sure why. Probably the combination of great gardening weather today and a little time to enjoy it.
