Weekly Topics

Wave and Icicles

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

This week I’m traveling to a section of the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise to photograph waves forming icicles.

A week earlier Colpoy’s Bay was frozen but after some thawing the wind had pushed the ice out of the bay. A week after this photo was taken the wind had pushed the ice back into the bay and it was frozen again.

The tripod was frozen to the shoreline when I packed it away.

This week Ann-Christine gives us the prompt Soft for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

My first thought was of some of the photos I had taken last year when I was experimenting with photographing flowers and plants with various unusual lenses. Mostly fast portrait lenses but also some CCTV lenses adapted to a mirrorless camera.

The Last Photo of February 2021

This is my contribution to Bushboy’s Last Photo on the SD Card Challenge for February 2021.

The last photo of February was a different version of my Monochrome Monday post for the 1st March 2021.

The framing is slightly different and this is in colour although it’s hard to tell. Now I’m beginning to prefer this composition over the shot that I used for my Monochrome Monday post.
