A continuation of using telephotos to isolate sections of the landscape.
This shot is from a couple of years ago. I had gone down to the dock at Bluewater Park in Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula for the sunrise. There was a good display of autumn colour on the Niagara Escarpment so once the sun was up I put a super telephoto lens on the tripod and started isolating sections.
This allowed me to focus attention on the autumn colour while having a thin strip of water along the bottom of the frame and a small section of sky at the top giving the trees some context.
The rock edge of the Escarpment is visible center left of the frame with a couple of large boulders that have fallen from the rock face at the waters edge.
Alternatively, part one of using a telephoto to isolate sections of the landscape as this may be an ongoing topic.
For this shot I was on a local back road looking for Eastern Meadowlarks during the golden hour one morning. I noticed the low sun was illuminating some distant trees with patches of mist amongst them.
Having a long telephoto on the tripod I started framing some of the trees and mist patches.
Throwback Thursday travels back to the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario in the mid 2000s.
I had gone down to the shoreline for the sunrise and discovered a small flock of juvenile Sanderling (Calidris alba) that had stopped off to feed on their way south for the winter.
I spent some time with them, this is one of them feeding on the shoreline.
A shot from the archives, one of my early digital captures. Lake Huron with Chantry Island on the horizon from the shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.
A nearly full moon sits high in the sky with an interesting cloud illuminated by the rising sun lower in the sky.
Monochrome Monday is going back to the weekend. I headed down to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise on Sunday morning. With heavy cloud covering the area I decided to shoot with the intention of converting the shots to monochrome.
This is a view of the bay and the Niagara Escarpment 17 minutes before sunrise. In the foreground is a row of old wood piles sticking out of the water.
