CFFC: Summer Scenes

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Summer Scenes.

The first image that came to mind wasn’t really a “scene” in the sense of a landscape. It was more to do with the memory of a hot summer day and sitting in the water with a large group of American White Pelicans. They were fishing in a channel where a marsh drained into a section of the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area in Saskatchewan, Canada.

The low evening sun casts long shadows and illuminates an old barn on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Trees

The Tuesday Photo Challenge – Trees was one of those prompts that gave me so many ideas it was difficult coming up with a theme.

So I decided to go with a tour of the decades starting with a one of my earliest photos. So early in fact that the original negative got lost or damaged and I ended up photographing the scene again when we got snow a couple of years later.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Fall.

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Fall.

I had a few ideas for the challenge after photographing some early fall colour at the weekend. In the end I decided to go with a selection of photos of fall colour covering several decades and various locations.
