Dark Greens of Late Summer

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Dark Greens September Colour topic.

Shades of green on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario a few days ago. I liked the light on the scrubland and the clouds over the greens.

Light Painting on the Shoreline

2021: Light Painting the Tree Trunks

Another unplanned experiment with light painting on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at dawn recently.

For this version I used a small flashlight (torch) to paint the tree trunks in the foreground during the 30 second exposure. Another test of the new TTArtisan 7.5mm fisheye lens.

This is also a contribution to Jez’s Water Water Everywhere photo challenge.

Female Ruby-throated Hummingbird

CMMC: Contains the letter U

A female Ruby-throated Hummingbird (Archilochus colubris) on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. A popular summer visitor to Ontario with their arrival a sign that summer is close.

My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week was chosen because it won’t be long before the Hummingbirds will be heading south for the winter.

I selected this photo of the species because it’s a personal favourite which was published in a calendar a couple of years ago.

It’s also a slightly late contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: August Alphabet must have two M’s in the word prompt.
