My husband and dog, Tisa, taken on our morning walk. These winter mornings it is still dark when we set out, but light by the time we return home.

This was a one second exposure, hand held and panned a bit.
The mysterious 'whirlpool' or 'vortex' is just the centre of a roundabout (island in the middle of an intersection).

Can't believe this ended in the 5.2 zone. Got an 8 from me. Love it.

Although this didn't do well, I am thrilled with the comments it received and the addition to posthumous' fantasy art gallery. Thank you all.

I'm not a fan of this style but when they are good they make you sit up and take notice, this is one of them.

I am not usually swayed by images such as this, but this is the second image I have encountered so far in this Challenge that I truly like. The best of luck to you in the challenge. I know the Posthumous crowd will never believe this, but I gave this a ten... it spoke to me... saying ... give me a ten.

cool shot, i like the merry-go-round type thing behind, also if you look at the dogs legs in pairs they look really human.

Repercussions of a nuclear thought echo throughout the mundane. Brilliant.
