Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Favourite Photos of 2019

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Favourite Photos of 2019.

I considered a few themes for the challenge but in the end decided to just go with a selection of my favourites for the year.

A January thaw saw this Ivy appear as the snow melted.

Late March and Colpoy’s Bay is still frozen.

Mid July and an Orange Daylily photographed with a 25mm CCTV lens adapted to fit a mirrorless camera.

Early September saw me down on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline 45 minutes before sunrise so I could do some long exposures. This is a 60 second exposure to allow the clouds to move across the sky.

Six Word Saturday, a sixty second exposure at dawn.


The end of October saw the autumn colour mostly coming to the end while a few trees held on to their leaves.

Mid November saw me down on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise where breaking waves had splashed over a bush to form this ice sculpture.

Och, dat vogeltje! Zo mooi … , onbeschrijfelijk mooi … , geweldig prachtig zangvogeltje, dacht ik. Ik moet die dingen uit zoeken, ben géén vogel-laarster …, nee … Lieve David! Met de allerbeste wensen voor een gezond en gelukkig 2020. Ik kom vlug bij je terug, om alles nog eens nauwkeuriger te bekijken. Ik ben zelf nu ook lekker met licht en lucht bezig, boven de Kostverlorenvaart. Doei!

Thanks Laura. The Ivy is growing over a boulder at the end of the driveway so it gets a camera pointed at it quite often.

Thanks Leya. Yes, the ice sculpture was a nice find. Each time I’m down at that section of shoreline I check for another one.

Thanks Susan. I tried to go for as much variety in the photos after using a selection of cameras and lenses over the 12 months.

Fabulous shots, David. I especially love those “blues” in your long exposure. Have a great 2020! And thanks for the “heads-up” on the Reader glitch!

Thanks Patti. You have a great 2020. The WordPress Android app seems to be getting worse. Since a recent update it won’t open some posts without me hitting the reload button on this tablet.
