A variety of autumn colours.

Saturday morning of week 40 had thick cloud. So rather than head off for a sunrise I went for a walk looking for autumn colour.

I was struck by the variety of colour in this small section of trees. I used a telephoto lens to pick out the most interesting section of colour.

Thursday evening of week 40 saw me looking for autumn colour on some local back roads during the golden hour.

I was rather disappointed with the autumn colour but noticed the long shadows and warm evening light on my favourite old barn. I ended up walking along a ditch to get to a position where my shadow wouldn’t be in shot.

Breaking wave.

Saturday morning of week 38 saw me on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario. There had been strong winds on Friday and overnight which caused the waves to come crashing onto the shoreline. I was at the flagpole at the bottom of High Street in Southampton and the waves were breaking on the rocks surrounding the flagpole.

The deep blue sky and fluffy white clouds were a big change from the weather the previous day and early Saturday morning. Chantry Island and it’s lighthouse is on the horizon.

Saturday morning of week 38 saw me down at Colpoy’s Bay at dawn. There was thick cloud over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment.

When the rising sun started illuminating the clouds I noticed a small group of Yellow flowers on the shoreline so framed a shot to include them. I used a graduated neutral density filter to balance the exposure for the sky and foreground.

Early on Sunday morning of week 38.

I was up early on Sunday morning to drive around to the opposite side of Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise. In part because it provides different views and in part because one of my regular locations has no access while the dock is being repaired.

Luckily I remembered to take a torch (flashlight) to follow the path down to the shoreline as I got there 35 minutes before sunrise. I then managed to drop one of my neutral density filters on the shoreline and needed it again to find the filter in the dark.

The photo is looking north-east out of the mouth of Colpoy’s Bay where there are three islands. In the photo part of White Cloud Island is on the left side of the frame with part of Griffith Island behind in the center of the frame.

Rockface.

Can you see it?

Taken on a recent evening walk. It’s at least the third time I have photographed this pile of rocks.

I’ve never been satisfied with any of the versions but I thought I’d share this to see if other people can see a face in the top rock or if it’s just me.

I was considering it for One Word Sunday – Hidden but decided that some explanation was necessary. So it’s a one word title followed by a long rambling post. If you can see the face it does appear to be hiding behind the other rocks.
