I’ve been playing with exposure factors for several days, trying to create the illusion of speed. Should I have the background in focus and a slight blur to the cyclists who have provided suitable practice targets, or the other way round?
Serious fiddling with twiddly bits, slow shutter, higher ISO, change metering and IS…
I hadn’t expected Lindi to provide a REAL shot of speed, she’s not famous for rapid movement other than towards her lunch!
She’s at the full reach of the camera & lens, following Lucy on a great Troll hunt. She’s possibly even in focus, it’s a bit hard to tell under all that flying hair LOL.

“I cannot think that we are useless or God would not have created us. And the sun, the darkness, the winds are all listening to what we have to say.”
“This above all – to thine own self be true,
And it must follow, as the night the day,
Thou canst not then be false to any man.”

One with the earth…
This sky where we live
Is no place to lose your wings.
So love, love, love.
Human beings are members of a whole,
In creation of one essence and soul.
If one member is afflicted with pain,
Other members uneasy will remain.
If you have no sympathy for human pain,
The name of human you cannot retain.
“Of one Essence is the human race,
thus has Creation put the base;
One Limb impacted is sufficient
For all Others to feel the Mace ”
