This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Seasonal.
This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Art from nature prompt.
The prompt started me thinking about some of my photos of ripples on the local bay at sunrise. I had taken a few since people were allowed back down there after the initial Covid-19 lockdown.
This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge prompt: Flowers: Blue or Purple.
I thought of two blue flowers that I find visually interesting, Borage and Chicory.
A Borage flower in a garden in Nantwich, Cheshire, England in the mid 1990s. Photographed with a 300mm telephoto lens to isolate the flower and buds from the surrounding plants.
A Chicory flower on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada last September. Photographed with a fast portrait lens to help isolate the flower from the surrounding plants.
This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow prompt.
I had a few ideas for the challenge before considering the word tomorrow in the prompt. I decided to head down to the dock at Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise the day after the prompt was posted and see what I came up with.
The dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay shortly before the sun came out.
