blowin’ in the wind

You might know by now that I like to photograph ‘non-traditional’ subjects and this is no exception.

The foreground shows a post and rail fence with wire mesh attached.  Behind the fence is a very large white pine.  The pine needles fell and were caught by the mesh.  I caught them blowing he wind blowing with a slow shutter 🙂  Techie mumbo-jumbo below the photo.

I set up my tripod and went for an aperture of f10. It was ~4PM on October 31st, so the sun was disappearing fast.  It was also very breezy.  With that aperture, the shutter was open quite a while and with the wind blowing, gave motion to the needles.

    I like it. Glad to see I’m not the only one playing with long exposures in the autumn evenings.
