Weekly Photo Challenge: Movement

Posted on

This week’s photo challenge is movement. I struggled with this topic at first, since anyone can take a photo of a fast-moving car or person running. I looked back to my photo collection and picked photos from my Alaskan trip. Movement can be fast, sudden, or relatively slow. I took these photos near Glacier Bay National Park (I think.) and the highlight was watching chunks of the glacier fall into the water while on the cruise ship. We didn’t know when the splash would happen, but it was exciting.

    I’ve been to Glacier Bay National Park, and these rivers of ice are amazing! Nice take on the theme.

      You don’t often think of movement moving slow then make a splash. Thanks for stopping by.

      Thank you! It was difficult to capture the falling ice, since you didn’t know exactly when it would happen. Thanks for your comment.

    Your creative interpretation of the theme is excellent. In a world that is so fast paced… it is comforting to know that slow movement can be appreciated. Thank you…

      Yes, the world now moves so fast with technology gadgets to new cars. I wanted to think of something unique for the idea of movement. Thanks for your comment.

      Thanks, it was a beautiful scene! You felt so little compared to the glaciers. Thanks for your comment.
