Wow! That first shot is a killer. It makes me want to get inside next to a fire with a hot toddy. And here, it was 86 degrees F today, we've been running the AC for most of this month. Was that taken recently?

Another beautiful pair of pics, as usual...

Kevin,

Got to get the prepositions right - poetry of motion; poetry in motion. Brilliant pictures, needless to say; works of art.

Not hard to feel the need for following a constant

Those pictures are in a way contrasts - yet made by the same creative mind.

Thanks Robert and Torgny...Robert, must be hard to be in such a warm place. There's nothing like getting out to cold and chilling places like this that, if you let it, the elements will snuff the life right out of you in 10 minutes! I took these shots back in December with a local photographer and friend, Peter Jobbins.

Torgny, I thought long and hard about the "in motion" vs "of motion" and came to the conclusion that everything that exists is in some degree or another, moving. It may be at a snails pace like the Rocky Mountains or a dead tree or blazing by like the stars or a nascar race. The poetic "thing" for me is not so much the "in motion" but of it. If that even makes sense...

Plus, when I was searching for the name, so many others had "in motion" registered and no one had "of motion". So I settled with the latter.

G'day all

Whether it's "in" or "of" .... whatever :-)
Those images, esp #1 are superb
p-l-e-a-s-e get a 36" poster print and place it on your loungeroom wall > it's great

Regards, Phil

wow... following the fence would be about the only way to find anything in a whiteout like that! glad we don't get that kind of weather here! but i love the 'high-key' look of the shot, and the way the fenceline just sorta disappears into the snow... the second shot reminds me of the whole 'Blair Witch" thing... spooky!

Hi Kevin

Great work on both photos.

Indeed, the 1st shot has very much a 'high key' feel to it. Normally I don't like that, but having been in a blizzard in eastern Europe, I can relate to what you're sharing... and it feels 'accurate'. I can follow the fence further along than I initially guessed I would... which makes this photo extra interesting.

The 2nd photo has severe vignetting, which I take you included on purpose. Adds to that 'I'm trapped in the forest' feeling.... Well executed.

Cheers, mate

Paul
