WWE #30: Golden Reflections

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #30 Photo Challenge.

These are two summer plumage Horned Grebe on a farm pool in Saskatchewan, Canada. The golden reflections on the water aren’t from a sunset, the photo was taken in the afternoon.

Behind the pool is a weathered wooden corral fence and a large stack of weathered straw bales. Because I was lying in the mud at the edge of the water getting down to eye level with the birds the fence and bales are being reflected in the water.

I should also explain that the Horned Grebe of North America is a subspecies of the bird known as the Slavonian Grebe in the U.K.

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #29 Photo Challenge.

Some interesting clouds over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment at sunrise. The line of small clouds makes me think of birds.

WWE #27: Shower Time

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #27 Photo Challenge.

Two North American race Herring Gulls taking a shower while stood on a rock on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario. I’m calling them American race Herring Gulls because different authorities class them either as a subspecies of the European Herring Gull or as a separate species.

WWE #26: Range Light at Sunrise

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #26 Photo Challenge.

First I should apologise to anyone who follows my Facebook page as they will have seen this photo a few days ago. I was looking for an early May photo for my Facebook page and discovered this completely overlooked shot.

This is the range light at the mouth of the Saugeen River on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario. Taken 12 years ago in early May if I wanted to repeat the photo this year I would be up to my knees in water, the foreground rock is underwater nowadays.
