Motion Captured in Photographs

Carolyn’s Online Magazine


(on our return travel from Florida to Pennsylvania)

The WordPress photo challenge for April 24, 2015, is motion: photographs that captured motion, with the stories behind the images.


Signs warn vehicle drivers to watch for bicyclists along the road passing through Piscah National Forest. While visiting Monte’s nephew Wendy and his wife Barb (Hendersonville, N. C.) they drove us to some of the sites along this road, including Looking Glass Waterfall. This shot of moving cars and bicycle was taken from our moving car as we were driving behind the group—double motion.

Two sand hill cranes wandered about the yard while we visited my husband Monte’s niece Jo-Ellen in Deland, Florida. They weren’t intimidated as I moved about shooting them, but they did keep moving—that is, unless they found a delicious morsel in the grass.

The tide was high and the surf was up when we visited St. Augustine Beach in St. Augustine, Florida. The first photo I shot at the beach was of this surfer nearing the sand.

While visiting Monte’s niece Alicia in Conover, North Carolina, her family arrived to open up their backyard pool. I caught Alicia doing her happy dance of gratitude during the cleanup.
