Last Saturday I posted a photo showing the Minneapolis Queen paddle wheeler. Sunday I went out on a boat on Lake Minnetonka with friends. I kept watching the waves being created by the boat. At some point, I thought of this photo challenge. I pulled out my cell phone to snap a few photos. Here’s a sampling of some photos I took.
I’d say these have definitely captured the theme of movement. I had no idea what quality I’d get by using a cell phone and traveling along at a fairly rapid clip on a boat. They came out surprisingly well. I posted these four because they show a variety of movement. Do you have a favorite?
A new weekly photo challenge will be posted on Friday. If you’re interested, you can find more information here: Weekly Photo Challenge on The Daily Post at WordPress.

A Different View of a Sunset
Sometimes the best view of a sunset is where the sun is striking an object or objects. One recent evening I found the setting sun lighting up these docks on White Bear Lake. The silver and gray docks against the blue water created an eye-catching contrast. The wind was fierce and I wasn’t sure I’d be able to keep my small camera steady enough for the shot. Fortunately, I was able to snap a couple of photos that captured the silvery light reflecting off the docks.
I was browsing through some photos in the archives last night and came upon this one. I thought it fit this challenge quite well.
