WPC: Blur

Taking photos from a moving vehicle, in this case The Canadian Train across the continent from Toronto to Vancouver, means that the images are not necessarily as sharp as they could be.

Sunflowers in the Prairies

But you get the idea that these croplands are BIG!

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. great moving atmosphere! i arrived through “Blur” and now saw your “Bench” series. lovely idea. will look for a Bench with a view. Have a beautiful weekend~

      1. Yes, it is. Lots and lots of trees and air to breathe, except in the major cities. I’d promised myself a train trip across the country. Maybe someday. Glad you enjoyed it. ❤

        1. Ah, but much nicer, watching the landscapes roll by, rocking to sleep with the motion of the train, dining in the restaurant car and sitting up in the observation cabin with a 360 degree view! SO much better than flying. It was expensive when we did it (2005) but well worth it.

        2. Probably a good thing! Well, going by trains in this country which are expensive, often overcrowded and sometimes filthy. Unfortunately I do have to use them occasionally.

        3. You are talking about YOUR trains. Although I do enjoy riding on our steam railways. No dining car though.

    1. I usually avoid taking photos from the side view as that always comes out very blurred, whereas through the front they can be OK. No option on the train though, unless you managed to get the front seat up in the observation cabin. I do like the feeling of movement this one portrays, speeding past huge fields of crops and yet still seeing so much.

  2. oh I would love to take a train through Canada like this – bet it was nice, eh? (get it.. eh?- jk)

    and what a nice entry for the wpc – seems like such a nice weather on this day….
