2020: Mornings

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Morning.

I decided to look back at some of the mornings I was out with a camera in 2020.

Wordless Wednesday: 26th February 2020

Down to the local bay at dawn before Ontario went into lockdown. Snow and ice on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise.

With some of the lockdown restrictions lifted I could go down to some sections of the local bay for the sunrise again. Storm clouds over Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise.

Monochrome Monday

Maple Leaves in Monochrome

Monochrome Monday travels back a week or so to an early morning walk around the neighborhood.

This group of Maple leaves have been a regular subject this summer. On this occasion I was switching between colour and monochrome during the walk depending on the subject matter.

A group of backlit Maple leaves

Some backlit Maple leaves and another of my tests using various lenses to photograph flowers and plants. This group of leaves were a regular test subject in the spring and summer.

In this case I was using the 7artisans 35mm f/1.2 lens wide open on an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II.
