Fisheye Sunrise

A recent sunrise over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment taken on the Government Dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay.

There was such a spread of cloud and colour I reached for my fisheye lens to get as wide a view of the clouds and reflections as possible.

Ivy in soft afternoon light

This Ivy growing up a tree trunk on the South Bruce Peninsula is a regular subject on my walks around the neighborhood.

Taken on a recent walk when I had a cheap 35mm CCTV lens adapted to the mirrorless camera I was using. I rather like the soft, slightly swirly edges of the frame the lens produces.

Autumn Leaves

Autumn leaves on the South Bruce Peninsula a few days ago.

I decided to resurrect my 12 year old DSLR when going for a walk around the neighborhood a few days ago. I used the camera regularly for years before getting a small, mirrorless camera after an accident last year.

I was somewhat shocked to discover that I had forgotten how to use an optical viewfinder. I kept looking for the histogram in the viewfinder. I was also wondering why the image in the viewfinder wasn’t changing when I dialed in exposure compensation.

Fire In The Sky

Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise last Sunday morning. It was almost monochromatic until the rising sun turned the bottom of some of the clouds red.

I borrowed the title from the Deep Purple song Smoke On The Water.
