It does seem as if the weather recently has given us day after day of dreariness and rain, which can get quite depressing, and has given limited photo opportunities. Getting desperate for some shots, I took these pictures whilst walking up through the park at dusk today. I decided to try for an impression of these trees, by the simple process of moving the camera up or down during an exposure of one second or more. Results can be unpredictable, but occasionally something good comes of it.
I normally tweak my shots a little before uploading them here: sharpening a bit, adjusting the white- and black-point, altering the white balance if needed to give a natural result, etc. I've left these as they came out of the camera, although the 'cloudy' white balance set has left the scene looking a bit bluer than I remember it:
A 'straight' shot of the scene for comparison, with the camera resting on a bench for support:
Probably not to most people's taste, but I quite like the dreamy effect that some of these 'camera pan' shots can have.
