This was taken near Elmo, Montana (USA), on the Flathead Reservation. I took the photograph out the side window of Shaun’s car and found that the motion blur combined with focusing on the mountains in the middle ground gave the image a tilt shift effect.

I’m entering this in the D.O.F. Challenge in the Pacific Northwest Photography group.

Photo taken in October, 2010 with a Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS camera.
