Seven images

From a recent walk in the Arboretum and using the 60mm lens. Motion blur (I am moving the camera ) studies of some thick and gnarly tree trunks. There is a color range here from browns/tans through greens caused by the light around the trees,  sunlight (more or less,) and greenery, both close-by and reflected.

I’m just as intrigued by the textures in each of these pictures. The movement of the camera smooths the thick rough tree bark into something softer and more fluid–almost silken–but the curves and shadows still remain.

In the next shot, why such a distinction?

Two trees, trunks touching , but one set a little back and more shaded.

    Wonderful, I especially love the textures. They’re almost like hanging cloth or fabrics.

    Great balance of movement, color and tones, Patricia. Love them.
