Week 16 – #36 Out of Focus

36 Out of Focus-1

Again in the Smoky Mountains, when we went out with Bill Lea, in the rain I might add, he had us experimenting with doing swipes.  The concept is to keep the tree trunks straight and to do this so the leaves merge causing the color shifts.  It is not as easy as it sounds and I have a number of just plain blurred images.  This one, the dark lines are the tree trunks, and you are seeing the different colors that were present – including the blues of peoples’ jackets.
