The Ordinary Maple Leaf

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: The Ordinary prompt.

I hadn’t given the prompt much thought when I went for a walk around the neighborhood last Sunday afternoon. I set out with a wide angle lens on the camera and a short telephoto in a pocket. I probably hadn’t walked 100 yards before deciding I had picked the wrong lens and swapped to the telephoto.

I should add that it’s very rare for me to take a second lens on one of my walks but I’m glad I did last Sunday. All the photos in this post are from that walk with the short telephoto on the camera.

Square Months

Past Squares #12

2021 and a July Squares: Trees

An exploding tree?

The rising sun shines through a fog shrouded tree near the village of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

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 supplemental square in Tree Squares Month and is my day 12 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

One Word Sunday


One Word Sunday: Art

A fallen Maple leaf on a weathered limestone boulder on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Not a selective colour treatment, the colour and tones are pretty much as they came out of the camera. I used Snapseed to add a vignette and lens blur around the edges of the frame to focus attention on the leaf.

This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Art prompt.
