While on my way to pick-up my daughter from school today I had a few minutes to kill, so I headed off to a few woodlots along the farm roads near my home. In one of the woodlots there are some nice groupings of Aspen trees and I have always wanted to shoot some blurs of them. Today’s mostly overcast weather was perfect for such photography. I was surprised to see a few of the Goldenrod plants still in bloom and thought they would make a nice splash of colour against the browns of late fall / early winter. It doesn’t really feel too much like winter around these parts just yet, as the days are actually quite warm and pleasant. Below you will see an assortment of handheld, in-camera, impressionistic blurs that I created this afternoon. Hope you enjoy these images.

Staghorn Sumac Blur

A trip down to Humber Bay on Lake Ontario in Toronto today was beginning to look promising until the clouds began rolling in and the wind picked up, not too mention the waterfowl were few and far between. Rather than pack up and head for home I realized this was blur-time. I spent several hours creating impressionistic blurs of many leafless trees, clouds, dogwoods and reed grass. Creating blurs is too much fun and before you know it the day is done. Here is a small sample of today’s blurs – more to follow.
