301 - Departure

From 365 Project
This week's spooky theme continues. I saw this straggly tree with a little color in the old Elmwood Cemetery in Norfolk Virginia. I was playing around with motion zoom technique and captured this eerie looking image. Canon 7D, 1/3 sec @ f/13.0, ISO 200 with a variable neutral density dialed in to block about 5 stops of light. With the resulting relatively slow shutter speed, I was able to zoom out while the shutter was open creating the "jump to light speed" look.

Thanks for the comments. Les's post of his Elmwood photos are amazing. Loved his title "Fall of the Dead."

Thanks for the mention. This was my first trip inside the gates, but I'll be back.
