Photography 101: Swarm

Swarm of Bikers

The idea of a swarm is not something I would run to my camera for but I am determined to participate. This photo was taken in July 2007 somewhere in West Virginia. I was on a week-long bike trip and we’re not talking motorized bikes. We started in Decatur, Indiana and ended in Fayetteville, West Virginia, over 450 miles of bike riding. And no, I would NOT be one of those riding. I was driving the service van.  We traveled down scenic US Route 60 from Charleston to near Fayetteville, waterfalls everywhere. The beauty was so stunning that I repeated the drive in 2009. This fun week ended with white water rafting down the New River Gorge.

This moment will never pass again, these small water droplets will be in this place and time only for this instant. The photo on the left shot with a medium f-stop & shutter speed, the right a larger f-stop & faster shutter speed.
