Two of a Kind: American Avocets

Two Of A Kind

Two summer plumage American Avocets feeding on a slough near Punnichy, Saskatchewan. Although the photo is as much about the ripples as the birds.

Plus I’ve always liked the two drops of water falling from the males bill. I say it’s a male because the bill is straighter than the bird in the background. The more curved bill means that the background bird is a female.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Kind Squares Month and is my day 17 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

Getting Back to Basics: A Splash of Colour In the Treetops

A splash of autumn colour in the tree tops on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Taken on a recent walk around the neighborhood with the TTArtisan 17mm lens on a small mirrorless camera.

October Squares: Past Squares

Lines of Ice at Sunset

Photographed during the spring thaw on Lake Huron at Southampton, Ontario, Canada. I thought the ice formations were unusual so took lots of photos as the sun was setting and as dusk settled in.

Light and Shade Under the Maples

Six Word Saturday: Light and Shade Under the Maples

Sometimes it’s just about the light.

In this case the light under a group of Maple trees around Fairy Lake in Southampton, Ontario. I was surprised by how green the leaves were considering that some of the Maple trees in the area had been changing colour for weeks.

A recent walk around Southampton with just a camera and one manual focus prime lens, in this case the TTArtisan 35mm lens.

Getting Back to Basics: Storm Clouds Over the Bay

Storm clouds over Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at late afternoon recently.

An outing with my Sony back to basics kit of a small mirrorless camera and a set of small manual focus prime lenses.

Light on the tops of Silver Birch trees

Sunlight on the Tree Tops

Low sun illuminating the tops of Silver Birch trees on Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England. I like the gradation of light to dark down the frame.
