I had been standing on the dock in Colpoy’s Bay photographing the sunrise when I turned around and saw the reflection of the tree being distorted by the ripples.
This image for Monochrome Monday was taken on a walk around the neighborhood last week.
The original was monochromatic before doing the conversion but I tried to bring out the imprints in the snow when doing the conversion. They were formed by ice from the overhead branches falling into the snow.
This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Look Up.
The first thing that came to mind when I read the prompt was the various bird species I have photographed in the yard as they look up, making sure that there isn’t a predatory species about.
A male American Goldfinch checking the sky.
A Chipping Sparrow looking up.
A Raccoon looking up, contemplating going after the bird feeders despite me being out in the yard.
A Red-breasted Nuthatch looking up as it feeds in the grass.
This is my day 20 contribution to Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge.
An American Red Squirrel in dappled sunlight on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada.
I had put a pair of scissors down on the studio table with the studio lights still on and noticed the various curves and liked the orange handles against the black background so decided to take some shots.
This shot was taken with the 7artisans 35mm lens wide open at f/1.2 and is my contribution to the One Word Sunday challenge Curve.
