"Black Sabbath" by Black Sabbath. A wonderfully dark and emotional song.

One thing about these abstracts, you don't have to do much editing. I spent maybe 5 minutes tweaking this, mainly changing the color via white balance (I like this blue more than the original green).

Once again I found that a pine tree Is a wonderful subject for camera movement abstracts. In this photo I looked at the side of a branch. What you see in the middle is the branch, and the rest is needles. Then I just zoomed while taking an overly long exposure to get the hgh key effect.

Very abstract but it is high key and blurry.

I didn't recognize the song but have looked it up on You Tube. No guessing points for me, but thank you for expanding my musical knowledge.
