A Photo a Week Challenge: Three Angles

I had a couple of ideas for the A Photo a Week Challenge: Three Angles before thinking of the old wooden piles sticking out of the water on Colpoy’s Bay at one of my sunrise locations.

A colourful sunrise reflected in the water around them.

Only the tips visible at dawn when the water level was high.

Red Double-decker

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Public transportation (bus, planes, trains, etc).

You may wonder why the title is Red Double-decker when it’s a black and white challenge. It’s because this photo of a red London double-decker bus on Westminster Bridge in front of the Houses of Parliament came to mind straight away. I decided to go with a monochrome conversion with the bus picked out in spot colour.

January Squares: Green-Light

This is my day 24 contribution to Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge and although it’s hyphenated it isn’t one of my made up hyphenated words.

To green-ligh means giving something the go ahead. Most commonly used in T.V. and film production it comes from green traffic lights giving vehicles the go ahead. This green-light is on the junction of Berford Street and William Street in Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada.

On the Hunt for Joy: Jump for Joy

This is my contribution for week three of Cee’s On the Hunt for Joy: Jump for Joy photo challenge.

I was convinced that I had a photo of a Squirrel jumping but a quick search didn’t turn it up so I had to find an alternative.

Here’s a couple of birds in the process of jumping off the branches they’re on.

A  Black-capped Chickadee.

Frosted Reeds at Dusk

Throwback Thursday travels back to Saskatchewan, Canada in the late 1990s and a frozen section of the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area.

This isn’t the most colourful section of the sky, that is to the south west and this photo is looking north. Whenever I am photographing around dawn and dusk I check behind the camera in case I am missing something interesting. In this case it was the band of colour and the last of the light on the partially frost rimmed reeds along the lake shore.
