Old Wooden Piles at Sunrise

Travel Tuesday this week is continuing my look back at some of the overlooked photos from the 52 week photo project I did in 2018.

Early May saw me down on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise. I used my telephoto zoom to isolate the old wooden piles sticking out of the water with the sunrise reflected in the bay.

Tree Trunk Details

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: On a Small Scale prompt.

On Sunday morning I went for a walk around the neighborhood with a macro lens on the camera. I quickly found myself concentrating on details of the various tree trunks on the route I picked.

One Word Sunday

Simple

This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday prompt Simple.

I had a couple of ideas for the prompt before remembering a photo from a recent walk around the neighborhood.

A simple image of Daylily leaves growing around the base of an Oak tree. Taken with a simple, base model mirrorless camera fitted with a simple and very cheap 35mm CCTV lens adapted to it.

Snowy Owl

My Saturday Bird this week is the Snowy Owl (Bubo scandiacus). It is a winter visitor to southern Canada and the northern U.S. in variable numbers year to year.

This individual lingered in southern Ontario in the spring and was photographed in early May. I suspect that it was digesting a recent meal as there was mud and a trace of blood around the birds bill.
