Sumi-e Reflections

Did a little four wheeling today in one of our local canyons, and played around with shooting from the dashboard of my vehicle (my olympus pen camera on a Gorillapod, hung upside down from my rear-view mirror). I got a LOT of crazy blurs, but few worthy of a second glance. This one was a happy accident...it was pretty noisy, so I opted for a black and white conversion and then by mistake I inverted it---liked it that way even better. The reflection of the trees is actually on the hood of my SUV.
Cool! Love the effects!

Thank you guys for your nice comments! I figure I better get at least a few 'blurs' in this week, since I picked the darn theme! I've had very few keepers this week.....I thought it would be an easy one! Hah!
