Photo Challenges

WWE #21: An Extreme View

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #21 photo challenge.

This is Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula at sunrise. It is formed by a large loop in the Niagara Escarpment which runs up the eastern side of the Bruce Peninsula.

The reason I say it’s an extreme view is because it was taken with a fisheye lens although that’s not obvious because I kept the horizon running across the center of the frame. This avoids the curvature very often associated with fisheye lenses.

The horizontal angle of view through the center of the frame is 130 degrees, more than the human eye can comfortably take in without turning the head. This is shown by the mouth of bay being visible on the left side of the frame which is to the north east. On the right side of the frame is the remains of a row of wood piles sticking out of the water which are to the south east from where the photo was taken.

Thanks Becky. I edited it for a post and then didn’t use it but thought it would be a good Water Water Everywhere contribution.

Thanks Jez. Sometimes I will use the curvature and although it’s not obvious in the photo the shoreline and row of wooden piles is curved when in reality it is fairly straight.
