CFFC: Tree, White, Orange and Blue

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Week 4, Pick a Topic from this Photo.

I picked the tree and the colours white, orange and blue. I decided to go with a small selection of photos of one family of birds, Nuthatches, in different trees in different regions.

This is the Eurasian Nuthatch, also known as the Wood Nuthatch or simply as a Nuthatch depending on which authority you reference. Feeding in typical Nuthatch style, going down a tree trunk checking nooks and crannies for insects. Photographed in Cheshire, England in the late 1980s.

This is the White-breasted Nuthatch of North America. This individual was photographed in light snow at -25°C in Saskatchewan, Canada in the late 1990s and is probably a male.

This is a Red-breasted Nuthatch of North America and probably another male. This individual is waiting for a turn on the suet feeder in the yard. Photographed in Ontario, Canada in the late 2000s.

You may be wondering where the colours I picked come in. White and orange are the colours of the breast feathers of the various species and all three have blue-grey feathers on their wings and backs.

CFFC: White and Green

This is my contribution to week 3 of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pick a Topic from this Photo. This week I picked two of the colours highlight by Cee in the prompt that accompanied the week 3 photo. Yes, I know white isn’t technically a colour.

To make it more of difficult I made a rule that the photos I picked had to have been taken in the past year, actually 10 months as I was in rehab until the end of May after my accident. Plus, all photos had to be vertical orientation.

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.

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.
