Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #74: Abstract

This week Patti challenges us “to break the rules and go beyond the traditional realistic image of an object, scene, or element and go “Abstract”.

The view of the earth from some 30,000 feet above is always fascinating, mountains, river, and seas are transformed into a unique abstract image.

You can intentionally move your camera while shooting a stable source of light with slow shutter speed to create an abstract image, like this one:

There are many cool ways to create abstract effects. I often utilize various filters to create a painting- like or an abstract image:

Thanks to Patti’s inspiring theme. I love how she leads us to go beyond the traditional realistic image of an object, scene, or element. You don’t want to miss it.

Patti, Tina, Ann-Christine, and I are looking forwarding to your “go abstract”. In your post, include a link to https://pilotfishblog.com/2019/11/30/lens-artists-photo-challenge-74-abstract/ (Links from the Reader are not working correctly.) Use the Lens-Artists tag to help us find you. 

Because Ann-Christine is traveling, Tina will host next week’s challenge #75 at Travels and Trifles.

Lens Artists Photo Challenge #73 — Cold

This week Tina hosts Cold for LAPC. It looks like the upper Midwest and northern Great Lakes in US have been facing below average temperatures in November. Some areas have record breaking cold temperature during mid November.

The Mount Evans is cold in summer. The climate on the summit of Mount Evans can be extreme, the annual temperature on the summit is about 18 °F (-8 °C).

When we started hiking up there, it was at around 30 F degree and sunny. 30 minutes later, it started snowing and the temperature dropped quickly.

The Athabasca Glacier in Alberta, Canada is another place that was cold in summer. You can take  snow coaches for transport over the steep grades, snow and ice part way up the glacier.

The glacier is approximately 6 km (3.7 mi) long, covers an area of 6 km2 (2.3 sq mi), and is measured to be between 90–300 metres (300–980 ft) thick.

This week, Tina asks us to share photos and your experience of cold. I chose the Mount Evans and the Athabasca Glacier in Alberta to address cold for this theme. Both were very cold in summer. I really don’t want to know how cold it is during winter.

As always, Ann-Christine, Tina, Patti and I hope you will join us.

Due to my travel schedule, I will be late visiting your responses and replying to your comments.

Patti (pilotfishblog.com) will host LAPC #74 next week. Stay tuned
