There are some interesting blue lights at the currency museum in Ottawa, Canada. I brought my camera to work one day and during my lunch hour I tried some abstract shots by zooming the lens while taking the photo.
Elmore Lake in Vermont has some excellent foliage in the fall. Here I focused on a single leaf that was floating in the water that was reflecting the colours.
An abstract image from the annual International Fireworks Competition that takes place in Gatineau, Quebec. After the first few go off the air starts to fill with smoke, so wide angle shots don't look as nice. It's at that point that I use my telephoto lens to do some close up shots. I've started playing with zooming and/or moving the camera to get some creative effects.
