I had to think a little about what I had that might fit this challenge. I finally decided on a photo I took while skiing at Beaver Creek Colorado. I was “test driving” a new camera and experimenting in blurring images with long exposures of action shots. This was one of the shots that didn’t turn out like I wanted but I thought it was an interesting effect so I didn’t delete it – and here it is. It is a photo of a skier shooting by me in the late afternoon……
He must be REALLLY fast...

I love it – hope you get to try it! You look like you’re in a much warmer climate – might be hard to find?

Yeah, in a tropical climate actually, but i experienced snow already 🙂

i saw another blurred entry in this week’s challenge and i thought that it’s really great that blurred photos are sometimes more effective in telling the story a photo is supposed to tell. great photo 🙂

Thanks Janis – I agree…even if it wasn’t exactly what I was after, I liked it immediately

To me it looks like the skier is actually on a bicycle. Great capture.
