Splashes of yellow buttercups


View to St Albans Cathedral, Hertfordshire, April 2020

Five seconds with a mix of holding the camera steady and moving it up and down, gives this gently blurred image. The combination of length of shutter speed; when and where you hold steady; and the speed and direction of movement, all come together to give the image that you want. But it may take a few attempts to get exactly what you are after.

  1. Love the painterly effect, Debbie. And many thanks for letting us at All Seasons in on the secret:) Just thought when getting over here that it has been ages that I have seen the buttercups in the meadows in Holland. It’s probably to warm and too dry for them here. Have an adventurous week, Jesh.

    1. You told me to inundate, so I will! I can see you like the attractive versions rather than the gloomy, dark ones, Sue, so I’ll see what else I can come up with.
