One from the archives taken in the early 2000s when I was living a few blocks from the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.
Taken with a telephoto lens to make the lighthouse large in the frame. As I was down at the shoreline regularly I could time the camera exposure to the flash of the light in the lighthouse. If I recall correctly the light flashed every six seconds. So after it flashed I would count five seconds and then release the shutter before counting six.
Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire, England sometime in the 1970s. This shot sat in my slide files overlooked until I started copying some of the slides a couple of winters ago. Since making a digital copy the shot has grown on me.
Probably taken when I was a photography student in the late 1970s. I recognise the location as close to my parents house at the time. If I was taken when I was studying photography it would have been taken with an Olympus OM1, which I still have. If it was taken before I was at art school it could have been taken with a Zenit E, my first serious camera.
A second shot from my Sunday morning walk during week 44. I was considering this as the pick for week and now I think I prefer this shot.
I was struck by the number of trees initially and then the pattern and complexity of them now that most of the leaves are off the branches.
We had lots of wind, rain and wet snow in week 44. I went for a walk on Sunday morning and spotted this solitary Maple leaf still clinging on despite the recent weather.
One from the archives taken 11 years ago this week.
I had gone down to the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario for the sunset behind Chantry Island when a small V of Canada Geese flew over so I reframed to include them.
