Why I disappeared for almost two weeks.

Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t posted since a Wordless Wednesday post on the 27th of March.

A couple of hours after I posted on the 27th I fell off a ladder and have spent the intervening days touring various hospitals having the resultant damage X rayed, CT scanned and partially repaired.

I have a fractured left Tibia now held together with four screws and multiple fractures of the right Humerus that are being left to heal naturally.

Unable to put any weight on my left leg or use my right arm it’s going to be a long healing process. I will be being moved to a rehab facility when a bed becomes available.

So this will be the last 2019 photo I will be posting for a while. Taken a few days before the accident it shows a frozen Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise with the Niagara Escarpment on the horizon.

The fourth day of Spring.

I went down to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise this morning. Between an ongoing health issue and limited access to the shoreline due to snow and ice it was the first chance I’ve had to get down there recently.

Not the most spectacular sunrise and it was bitterly cold down on the shoreline but it was still nice to be out with the camera. Ice on Colpoy’s Bay with snow on the shoreline and the Niagara Escarpment on the horizon.

Spotted, Giant Red Butterfly.

A giant Red Butterfly garden ornament over wintering on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. Taken on a walk earlier in the week when we saw some blue skies and sun between the snow squalls.

Continuing a bit of a theme from this winter as I have photographed some of the relatives of this butterfly previously and also because I gave it a film type border.

Shadow across the tracks.

A shot from a walk earlier in the week and originally taken for my response to the Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge Shadows.

In the end I didn’t use it for the challenge but put a film type border around it using Snapseed.

It’s strange, in my film era I was never a fan of these types of borders but nowadays I think they can give an image a certain character.
