Fading Summer Colours

Another quick post of a recent photo written using the Wi-Fi at a park in the local town as we have no internet connection again.

A couple of fading Coneflowers taken on a recent walk around the neighborhood.

Fisheye Dawn

Still no internet connection so a quick post of a recent photo.

This is Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment at dawn last Sunday morning. I used a fisheye lens to include as much of the bay as possible and the dock I was standing on.

I kept the horizon in the center of the frame to reduce the fisheye distortion as much as possible. The edge of the dock is slightly curved by the lens.

Monochrome Monday

Maple Leaves in Monochrome

Monochrome Monday travels back a week or so to an early morning walk around the neighborhood.

This group of Maple leaves have been a regular subject this summer. On this occasion I was switching between colour and monochrome during the walk depending on the subject matter.

Nine Minutes After Sunrise

Technically the photo was taken nine minutes after sunrise but the sun still hadn’t cleared the Niagara Escarpment. It would be another seven minutes before the sun appeared.

Weekly Photo Challenge


This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Early.

I had a few ideas for the prompt before thinking of the summer solstice, the earliest sunrise of the year. I didn’t get any summer solstice sunrise photos this year as all my local locations were closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. So this shot is very early morning on the 2019 summer solstice.

Saturday Bird

Eurasian Nuthatch

My Saturday Bird this week is the Eurasian Nuthatch (Sitta europaea).

Alternative common English names are Wood Nuthatch and simply Nuthatch. The species is found across most of Europe and a large section of Asia. This bird was photographed in Cheshire, England.
