One of the challenges of still photography is to show motion. On my "bucket list" for the Palouse trip were flowers. Flowers were hard to come by. We finally found stumbled across some in a fence row one afternoon. It was breezy so I opted to try something new- a zoom swirl. Using a Vari-ND (an adjustable neutral density filter by Singh Ray that allows for upto 8 stops of darkening for longer exposures), I dialed up a long exposure of a few seconds and zoomed and twisted the camera during the exposure.
