Color and Movement

Here are a number of abstracted photos taken on a cool July evening after a rainy, windy day. As I have been experimenting with recently , the technique is one of using a slow shutter speed (1/4 to 1/10 sec)  and moving the camera during the exposure.

I like the way motion can be used to blur the image, to obscure details that can distract from the strength of the color and patterns at the core of the image.
