Steady Shot INSIDE stabilisation is a feature on all alpha cameras, helping both reduce camera shake and allow you to use much lower shutter speeds without ruining your images. It also opens up a whole world of creative flexibility. In this challenge we are looking for the best hand held image that shows use of a slow shutter speed.

9th place
Taken from a gravel road ditch in ~20mph winds at around 2 a.m. Drove from Wichita to Des Moines through this front and got ahead of it for about an hour, so I took the opportunity. Didn't have a tripod with me and the wind was too heavy to utilize carpod.
