Excuse me while I swipe the sky!

Sunday I spent the day with a fellow photographer and friend Annette Conniff, rambling through Maryland shooting ice, snow and winter scenes. We planned to end the day on Kent Island hoping for a beautiful sunset on the icy Chesapeake Bay. As we stood out in the 15 degree afternoon watching the sky, we had hopes of the sunset we envisioned, as a bank of clouds moved in, but they moved in too fast and too heavy for the kind of sunset we had envisioned. As the sun was just about to set, it broke through on the horizon. So I made a traditional sunset shot, shooting at f-22 to catch a star burst. Then I went into swipe mode....and had some real fun creating the following abstract images moving the camera from left to right across the horizon as the exposure was in progress.
