Photo Hunt - Fast


The theme for this week's Photo Hunt is Fast. I don't have any decent car or plane photos so here is a photo of water moving fast from a fountain in Trafalgar Square

That's a great shot. Almost looks like an etching.

Wow, what an amazing photo. Really looks like a work of art (and the water does look very fast). Loved seeing this one!

Have a great weekend.

What a neat image. All those drops pursuing their own path. And all of them at speed :)

I prefer this to a fast car or plane, much more interesting!

Expat Traveler said...

I feel like it's going to ice over, fast! :) Happy hunting this weekend.

Nice pic, Jams. I, too, thought of putting up pics of fast moving water -- glad I didn't though as yours is much more picturesque than anything I've got. :)

Gorgeous! The light is especially dramatic.

Gattina said...

Beautiful picture ! I prefer by far this fountain then a (stupid) car ! lol !

Alice Audrey said...

A fast moving fountain? I have to use that phrase in my writing some time. Too good to forget.

I love the spray and sense of movement you captured. Excellent photography.

Surfie said...

Nice shot!

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

Beautiful photo. I can vouch that traffic around Trafalgar is anything but fast!

Daisy said...

That looks perfect for running around in during the summer months!

Marta said...

This is a very cool photo and interesting post for this week's theme. I love all the spray and how the photo pulls you in to see the fountain. I would never of guessed where it was. Have a great weekend.

ian said...

fantastic. would love to ride any fast vehicle to get out of this foot-high snow we're current stuck in in the United States =0

have a great, warm weekend! and holidays, too!

Pagan Sphinx said...

Excellent! Trafalgar Square, the time I spent in London, was swarming with people enjoying the sun. I loved it there.

girasoli said...

Very cool photo and great take on the theme this week. Love how you captured the spray.

Mirage said...

What effect did you use? Love it!

jams o donnell said...

THanks everyone. Mirage, I took the shot at a very fast shutter speed against the sun

susan said...

That certainly works for me too.

Stan said...

That's an amazing photo, Jams. Very painterly. And fast!

The fountain is a very strange shape, and difficult to discern, which is part of what makes the image so interesting, I think.

Susan, Stan Thanks!
