When considering the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Simple Joys prompt I remembered going down to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise and the joy of being entertained by a Belted Kingfisher pretending to be a Barn Swallow by sitting on a power line along the road.
That made me wonder what the sunrise had been like and what else I had photographed that day. That then got me thinking about coming home from another sunrise and spotting two Sandhill Cranes in a hay field in nice early morning light.
That was on the 4th August 2018 so here’s a selection of simple joys from that day.
The simple joy of a section of the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline to myself for a 50 second exposure at dawn.
The simple joy of a black and white photo of the mist and low cloud over the Niagara Escarpment across the bay.
The simple joy of spotting these two Sandhill Cranes in a hay field coming home from the sunrise.
The simple joy of setting up a camera in the yard to photograph this male American Goldfinch in its smart summer plumage.
