Illusion of Movement

I was taking sunset pictures
through a grove of trees
in the last moments
before darkness
overcame the land.
I have a number
of very pretty pictures
(some of which I'll post another time),
but this picture
was by far
the most interesting.
I have no idea
what I did
to create this effect.
If I stare at it long enough
I swear I am moving.
Or the trees are moving.
I wish I knew
what happened
to create
this illusion.
The colors behind the trees
are absolutely brilliant
and make a perfect
backdropfor the impression
of movement in a still shot.
Some days you just get lucky.

I was taking photos at Grey's Lake
one evening recently.
Once the colored lights
on the bridge came on the
spiders and their webs were amazing.
Behind some of the photos you can see
dots of light from the Des Moines
downtown city skyline.

High Trestle Trail Bridge at Night

The High Trestle Trail Bridge,
just west of Madrid, Iowa,
is simply amazing.
The architect is a genius.
If you've never been here, I highly
suggest you make a trip to visit.
If you come visit at night,
bring a flashlight as
only the bridge is lit up at night.
It's worth the drive,
worth the walk,
worth the time.
What a view.

Flowers near Mayo Clinic

Mayo Clinic has such beautiful buildings
and beautiful surroundings.
This post focuses on some of the gorgeous
flowers found on the grounds of
Mayo Clinic or in areas near the clinic.
They certainly brightened my day
and I hope they will brighten your day as well.
