19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Trees in Motion

Captured in Yellowstone National Park at the height of fall foliage in October 2021, this motion-oriented image was taken with a 0.4 second exposure while holding the camera steady for a fraction of a second and then using rapid vertical motion to blur the aspen trees and their beautiful yellow leaves. The result is a subtle background of detail combined with a foreground of white lines and vibrant yellow and orange color.
