This is a common sight in this part of Ontario in the summer and autumn, a fire in a fire pit. In this case the pit is an old wheel rim in a back yard.

People sit around their fire pits in the evening. The theory being that the smoke helps keep the mosquitoes away. Although they always manage to find me regardless of the smoke.

Friendly Friday: Dramatic

After initially considering some motorsports photos and then wildlife photos I thought about some of the dramatic skies we have had over the past few months.

So my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Dramatic is a selection of clouds over various parts of Colpoy’s Bay.  All taken this summer and autumn.
