CFFC: Trees, Clouds and Early Mornings

This is my contribution to week 2 of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pick a Topic from this Photo.

For week 2 I picked three topics from Cee’s photo, trees, clouds and early mornings. Originally I was planning on going with a single location but quickly thought of other photos. So I limited myself to six photos from the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario taken over the past few years.

 

Silent Sunday: 27th October 2019

CFFC: Panoramic Views

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pick a Topic from this Photo where Cee posts a photo and participants pick something from the photo to make a post about.

As the photo Cee posted was a mural of a landscape in a panoramic format I decided to go with a small selection of panoramic landscapes.

CFFC: Point Your Camera Upwards

One set of photos came to mind straight away when I read the prompt for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Point Your Camera Upwards.

A few years ago we had some moderately good autumn colour and the leaves were staying on the trees. So I spent some time with a fisheye lens attached to the camera pointed up at the autumn leaves.

I decided to re-edit some of them with a square crop as I thought cropping them square would suit the subject.

CFFC: Glasses, Cups or Saucers

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Glasses, Cups or Saucers.

Having been on a bit of a table top photography kick recently this was a good challenge for more messing around with unusual viewpoints and adapted lenses.

I thought the pattern of rings on this drinking glass was interesting.

 

CFFC: Roofs of Any Kind

Two photos came to mind when I read the prompt for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Roofs of Any Kind.

So here’s the two roof photos taken around 40 years apart.

Raindrops on a car roof photographed in the late 1970s. I know the approximate date because it’s the car my father had when I was in art school.

 

One Word Sunday: Window.

A variety of roof styles on the High Street in Southampton, Ontario taken last year.

 

CFFC: Red Knot

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Needs to have the Letter “K” anywhere in the word.

I started thinking about some of the birds and mammals that have the letter K in their common English names. One of the first species that came to mind was Red Knot, possibly because in Britain the common English name is simply Knot.

Having spent some time with two juvenile Red Knot on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario when they had stopped off on autumn migration I decided to go with a selection of photos showing various activities.

These young birds had hatched from eggs a few months previously and had already traveled a considerable distance from the Canadian arctic. Some Red Knot fly to coastal South America for the winter.

CFFC: Vanishing Point or Leading Lines

A contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Vanishing Point or Leading Lines.

My first thought was of roads disappearing off in the distance.

Having spent part of the winter making digital copies of my slide archives I had found several photos of roads suitable for the challenge so I decided to go with my initial thought.
