Capturing Movement

How does one do that? In my case it is almost always the law of probability, if not just serendipity πŸ™‚

Out of a dozen or more photos clicked while hubby fed these frenzied carp on the Chao Phraya river, I was confident I would have at least one half way decent shot.

Depressions in the Bay of Bengal (during the North East monsoons) bring cyclonic storms over the East coast of India. The shot below was clicked during one such storm, as I watched with awe – and quite a bit of fear I must confess – gale force winds shake these palm trees outside my window like they were rag dolls! The one in the background is certainly having a bad hair day.

The next isn’t a nature shot as per the Wild Weekly Challenge requirements, but I couldn’t possible do a post on ‘movement’ and exclude this one.

Shot in Hiroshima station, I aimed for a frontal view of the worlds third fastest train – the platypus nosed Japanese Bullet train – but I underestimated its speed and wound up with this! The idea of anything faster boggles the mind!
