Weekly Photo Challenge: Blur (Nature)




 Some people seek meaning in life through personal gain, through personal relationship, or through personal experiences.

However, it seems to me that being blessed with the intellect to divine the ultimate secrets of nature gives meaning enough to life.

  1. I really like the third image… been sitting here looking at it for a while… very eerie and unsettling.. which is a good thing! I like that the horizon is at a slight angle as I feel at any second everything is going to slide off the edge of the photo! And the sky looks like a hurricane is coming… great job.

    • After reading your beautiful comment, I appreciate the scene much better. I took the shot with my iPhone and was disappointed. A storm was coming, and we had lots of rain that night. Thank you so much for taking time to view and write such a thoughtful comment, Roslyn! 🙂 Happy Easter!

  2. Amy, what interesting effects with your “blur” images; and how interest is the quote by Michio Kaku. I’ve struggled with what Michio Kaku says for long, with this affinity with Nature, it just struck me when I read this quote. Thank you for a great combo!

  3. Beautiful trio of photos, Amy. Very creative way you interpreted blur. My favourite one has to be the bird photo, love how you processed it. Looks like it’s preening, cleaning itself 😀 You capture action shots so well, and you also capture the slower parts of life amazing as well. Hope you’re having a good Easter 🙂


    • Thank you so much, Mabel! The egret stand on the tree was too blurry to edit… 99% of the time of capturing wild flying birds are disappointing and 90% of the time you wither don’t find them or can’t capture them with the camera, like I did yesterday, I got none in almost three hours… 😦
      Happy Easter to you, Mabel. 🙂


      • Oh no, so sorry to hear you had a bit of a downer of a photo shooting. I dislike those days when I really want to go home with at least a half-decent photo 😦 It seems you were shooting the egret from behind the tree, like you were peeping at it 😀

        I am sure next time or another time you’ll take more photos than you can count…perhaps a few hundred 🙂

        • I didn’t use the long lens, after I cropped the photo, it got even more blurry. Yep, I took the shot thr a tree… I saw a few colorful birds in the woods yesterday, but they were not cooperative at all. I have not learned much about capturing flying birds, but have leaned how to appreciate when I see a flying bird photo. 🙂

    • Thank you, BJ! The mood of the last one caught good attention here. I personally like the posture of the egret, the blurry of leave, and even branches of the tree… So glad you like it, too. 🙂 🙂

  4. Interesting post Amy Dear!When I shoot and get blurred photos,I usually delete them.However,if we have a closer look,we might find some unusual and mysterious beauty.Lovely your photos for the challenge,but the last one is so storytelling.It has infinite possibilities as it is not static,you caught motion in it that makes it heavenly!
    Before signing off,I would like to tell you that I see “You” in Kaku’s quote,it feels as if you have written it … ❤ xoxox


    • seeing me in the quote, that is the highest praise, my dearest friend. Happy to know you like the last one. I don’t normally save blurry pics at all. I wish I remember how did I snapped it. 🙂 Happy you have a great week.
