V is for Velocity

Various Vehicles have Very Variable Velocities. Verification of the Velocity can be a Vexatious experience for both the driver of the Vehicle and the Verifier.

This one is VERY experimental - but I liked the colour of the car :-)



Today's post is an entry in the FIFTH round of ABC Wednesday, the meme initiated by Denise Nesbitt.

Fantastic shots my friend.

Malyss said...

To find a way to illustrate this word was a real challenge! and you succeded with great talent (like always!)
the first shot is sooo impressive!I hope you were not the driver?!...

Dina said...

Vroom vroom! You can feel the velocity in these shots.
You deserve the Alliteration Prize. :)

Were you walking in that tight tunnel?
The first vehicular view is very very good (can't think of a v word that means good).

John said...

I particularly like the effect in the top shot, very effective.

Gerald (Hyde DP) said...

very evocative - looks like a place where speed needs to be limited.

VALKYRIEN said...

Utrolig stilige bilder! Oser av fart og bevegelse!

Arya said...

Kjempestilig actionbilder! Du får det til å se greit ut å være i tunnell, du!

Sylvia K said...

Fantastic shots! I could almost feel the cars whizzing by!

Have an ABC Day!

Awesome choice for V. Great motion shots.

Gallow said...

These shots look like they could have been dangerous to take. It looks like the photographer is on that little thin strip of concrete between the lanes.

(If it wasn't dangerous, you can still tell us it was, and I'll believe you. :-))

Spiderdama said...

Stilig V og utrolig flotte bilder som alltid!

Life with Kaishon said...

Wow. That is a good V! I love it! You always think of the best ideas! Perfect!

Anne-Berit said...

Der kan du nesten føle farten på bilene.Knallbra:)

Mara said...

I love that first one. I might be a bit prejudiced though, since I believe it's a coach and I drive a coach... Good V anyway

Leslie: said...

WOW! I can just FEEL the speed in those shots! :D

Anne said...

Noe så enormt Rune!!
Har faktisk prøvd meg på dette jeg også. På tur hjem fra Trondheim en sen natt etter vi bloggdamen hadde hatt treff. NÅ! mens tunellene er nesten tomme tenkte jeg..., men ble nok ike publisert nei, må vel forsøke igjen :-) men med munnbind, du for et støvhull.

Skikkelig bra bilder i alle fall!!

Ann said...

Wow , you captured an invisible thing. Great job.

Thanks for advice on doing reflection.

Reader Wil said...

The photo shows a great velocity! Very clever, Rune and thanks for adding a lot of new V words to my vocabulary.

Q said...

Thank you for this virtual visit.
You are a virtuoso with the camera!

Carolyn Ford said...

I can feel the strong breeze left by that motion! Amazing photos! But...where were you standing? That worries me a bit! You must be okay since you were able to post! :)

Ken Mac said...

love it love it!

Manang Kim said...

Wow that is an awesome take.

Janie said...

Fascinating photos that illustrate velocity very well. Perhaps you could verify the velocity with a policeman's radar gun...

Tumblewords: said...

Terrific captures. The vibrant Red car is right up my alley for the list of 'wants'!

Roger Owen Green said...

Impressive, though now I have a bit of VERTIGO.

Rose said...

These are fantastic! The first one is my favorite--the flash of blue really illustrates velocity. You were very brave to stand nearby to take these--hope nothing with too much velocity was rushing towards you!

Marka said...

Nice combination of alliteration and photographs!

Martha in PA said...

Great post and awesome pictures!

Tash said...

OH my Gosh - these are fabulous! such speed.

AnneKa said...

Hei!!
Har laget en egen blogg med oversikt over Fotoblogger og lurer på om du vil stå på den.
Legg igjen en kommentar hvis det er greit.

Hilsen AnneKa

GAWO said...

Pass deg! Bilene kommer skikkelig fort!
Rune, dette var utrolig tøft.
Er det bussen som suser forfi deg på det første bilde?
Og har du vasket tunellen før du knipset? Lyst og fint.
Står du ute eller er du i bilen?
Mange spørsmål på en gang.
Men du skjønner, bildet ditt fanger meg.

Mar said...

Fantastic shots!!
V is for...

Kate said...

Clever shots for "V" and creative commentary!

Jay said...

Very clever - and nicely photographed.

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Stilige bilder Rune! Ser at det er lys i enden av tunellen der også :)

RennyBA's Terella said...

I just love the way you play with words accompanied with great pics!

Tom said...

Excellent shots Rune.... I can almost hear those cars...

Paula Scott said...

Yes, indeed! Excellent shots! Most certainly exemplifies what velocity is and what a great word to choose for 'v'!

ChrisJ said...

"I can experience the vibrations of the velocity, vicariously," she said vehemently. :)

Ida said...

Stilige bilder!
Det første er fantastisk FINT! :)

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Brilliant shots, Rune!

Lew said...

Interesting post! With a good light and a few calculations, youcould set your camera so that it "freeze" cars below a given speed and the blurry ones would be over the limit!
