Here Comes the Holiday Season

This week Ann-Christine gives up the prompt “And Here Comes the Holiday Season” for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

Given the subdued holiday season a lot of people will be having this year I thought I would look back at previous years.

After a couple of rewrites that theme morphed into this post somehow.

Cream of the Clouds

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge prompt Cream of the Crop.

Originally I decided to go with a small selection of the more memorable photos from this year. The first photo I picked was of clouds streaking across the sky at dusk. At that point the theme changed to some of the memorable clouds over the year.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Old and New

Clouds streaking across the sky at dusk. A photo from late spring and the first time I tried the Olympus Live Composite feature. The shot that changed the theme of this post.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: From an Unusual Angle

Taken on a walk around the neighborhood shortly after Ontario went into lockdown in the spring. With the lack of aircraft flying at the time the sky seemed bluer and the white, wispy clouds and white Paper Birch trees were a nice contrast against the blue.

2020: Red Streak

Unusual lighting on storm clouds over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment at sunrise in the autumn.
