Header Challenge 27th April 2011–Speed.

This week we have the need for “Speed” as our header theme well speed anyway. I thought I could continue bringing you some animals from Woburn thinking at least some of them must be showing some speed in one or two of my photos.

Unfortunately, they were all having a slow lazy day due to the heat, it was one of the hottest days of the year so far when we visited.

The wolves were just lying around…

Now I’m sure you all know they can be fast when they want to be, when they are running in packs to hunt.

These ones though just wanted to lie around or stroll slooowwly around their area of parkland.

They even stopped to have the odd dip in a pool by the side of the road. This wolf had just got out…

So I’m afraid not much in the way of speed there so to finish I’ve included a photo of one of their mad distant cousins who does enjoy running fast (mostly anyway, sometimes he’s lazy too).

However for my header I’ve decided to go down a different track completely. As it’s been so sunny and warm here recently, the washing has been out on the spin airier in the garden. So with the back drop of the bright yellow rapeseed growing in the field next to our house, I used a tripod and a longish exposure to capture the movement of the washing spinning at speed on the line.

I hope you think it’s worked.

Remember to speed over to view the other headbangers posts and headers after letting me know what you think of this weeks take on speed.

Dave - the spin dryer, neat idea my friend.

I don't think I've ever known anyone take a photo of a whirligig before.

Dave: Cool shot, I have had to take a second look to figure it out.

Great pattern examples! I love those beach huts the best! Just too cool and retro for words!

Thanks for the new follow and for visiting with me. I've been pushing myself the last couple of years to get better at photography so I appreciate your kind words! I see that you have the photo bug too and no doubt adore critters, buildings, and nature. I'm so pleased to make your acquaintance and good luck in my grand giveaway! Even if you don't win, now you have a whittling idea!

Oh, I forgot to say that they royal couple are positively a breath of fresh air. Such lovely people. And the little girl on the bottom left of that photo with them kissing is positively priceless! Look at that face, ROFL!

You certainly found some wonderful examples of repeating patterns in your world. You did a great job capturing them too!

I lived in England for 3 years as a teen and was fascinated with your Royalty (I especially love old castles), so I was up at 3:30 am to see Wills and Kate wed just as I was to see Diana and Charles back in 1981. Beautiful!

Great shots! I love the first one and the buildings. Very Nice!

The beach huts look like a dream from the 60s :). Could you please tell me, Dave, where was that shot taken? again, so cool...

Donna said...

Sorry to be late but I had company in for the weekend...
LOVE All of these! Especially the silver balls shot! Beautiful!

I sure like that shot at the beach! All of these are wonderful.

I love the little sour puss at the royal wedding. A lot to be said for a child who won't be impressed!
