Panning For Pics.

Today we had some spring weather. Storm clouds, bizarre temp changes from cool to very warm to cool, but we never did get the forecasted storms. It was a great day spent outdoors. We even had some sunshine in there. The kids took full advantage and pulled out shorts.

Wish I had half their energy, their determination, or their thirst for life. They seriously amaze me.

I practiced my panning some. A technique I have yet to master. If you haven't tried it, just select a slower shutter speed than you normally do. It seemed to work best when the sun was out. Perhaps my shutter needs to be even slower. Can't wait to tackle this again with more vibrant colors.
