2020: Emotions

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. This week Patti gave us the prompt Emotions.

After some thought I decided to look back at 2020. A very strange year that saw me not make it back to the U.K., hospitalised in the spring and then there was the Covid-19 pandemic.

Silent Sunday: 26th January 2020

Mid January and I had postponed plans to visit the U.K. due to the beginnings of the Covid-19 pandemic. I was going for walks around the neighborhood little realising that in a couple of months that would be all I would be allowed to do.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Old and New

By the end of May I was going a little stir crazy being stuck at home. I set up in the yard in the biggest gap in the trees and tried to photograph the clouds at sunset. When that didn’t work out I started playing around with the Live Composite setting on the Olympus camera I was using. Live Composite recorded the clouds streaking across the sky at dusk.

Silent Sunday: 26th July 2020

July saw some of the Covid-19 restrictions eased and I could visit one of my sunrise locations on Colpoy’s Bay. Things seemed to be settling down into the new normal.

Wordless Wednesday: 30th December 2020

The end of December and Ontario was putting some Covid-19 restrictions back in place and I was going for walks around the neighborhood again. Less than two weeks into 2021 and Ontario has declared a provincial emergency with a stay-at-home order in place.

One Word Sunday

Skyline

This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Skyline.

I decided to go with a local skyline with some interesting geology.

This is the Niagara Escarpment in autumn with Wiarton Marina below. This is the same escarpment the the Niagara River flows over at Niagara Falls on the Canada/U.S. border. The escarpment starts and ends in the U.S. after traveling across part of southern Ontario and forming the eastern side of the Bruce Peninsula. You can see sections of the limestone face of the escarpment through the trees.

Throwback Thursday

Autumn Colour in Early Snow

Throwback Thursday travels back to southern Cheshire in the early 1990s.

An early snowfall while lots of the trees still had their leaves. With the weather conditions I headed to Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire for some photos.

I must have been standing on the edge of the sandstone ridge to get this photo looking down into the shallow valley below.
