Looking Down at Autumn Colour

This is my contribution to day 10 of Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective.

It’s also tied in with my day 9 post for the challenge which was looking up at autumn colour.

CFFC: Red and Green

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Week 5 – Pick a Topic from this Photo.

I went with the colours red and green from the list of prompts provided by Cee and then decided to go with photos taken within the past year.

April Squares: Looking up at the Autumn Tops

This is my day six contribution to Becky’s April Squares: Top photo challenge.

Looking up at the autumn leaves on the South Bruce Peninsula. Taken with a fisheye lens although that’s not obvious because there’s very little of the distortion visible with the lens pointing almost straight up.

April Squares: On Top of the Ridge

This is my day two contribution to Becky’s April Squares: Top photo challenge.

Note. We lost our internet connection yesterday afternoon. I’m posting this using the phone as a WiFi hotspot. This maybe my last blog post for a while.

The ridge in the title refers to the Mid Cheshire Ridge, a line of low sandstone hills sticking out of the Cheshire plain. This section of the ridge is Bickerton Hill, or southern Bickerton Hill according to Wikipedia. The northern Bickerton Hill referenced by Wikipedia was always known as Raw Head by everyone I knew who walked the hills.

 

April Squares: On Top of the Ridge

I had gone to Bickerton Hill to photograph the autumn colour and was walking along the edge of the ridge when I noticed the frozen puddle on the sandstone ledge. I framed the photo with the puddle at the bottom with the top of the frame looking down into a valley below.

CFFC: Trees, Clouds and Early Mornings

This is my contribution to week 2 of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pick a Topic from this Photo.

For week 2 I picked three topics from Cee’s photo, trees, clouds and early mornings. Originally I was planning on going with a single location but quickly thought of other photos. So I limited myself to six photos from the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario taken over the past few years.

 

Silent Sunday: 27th October 2019

CFFC: Point Your Camera Upwards

One set of photos came to mind straight away when I read the prompt for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Point Your Camera Upwards.

A few years ago we had some moderately good autumn colour and the leaves were staying on the trees. So I spent some time with a fisheye lens attached to the camera pointed up at the autumn leaves.

I decided to re-edit some of them with a square crop as I thought cropping them square would suit the subject.
