This is my contribution to Amy’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Colourful April prompt.
I decided to look back at some of colourful April photos from my archives. One for each decade since the 1980s with as wide a variety of images as possible.
1980s. The first weekend of April 1982. I am at the Le Mans race circuit in France documenting Team Bike in their first 24 hour endurance races. A pit stop at dawn on Sunday morning.
1990s. A male Orange Tip Butterfly feeding on Bluebells in a cottage garden. Photographed at Faddiley near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.
2000s. A male American Robin on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada. Recently arrived in Ontario on spring migration and giving me an attitude.
2010s. Late April 2018 and the local bay is still frozen and partially snow covered. Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada at sunrise.
2020s. Moss and lichen on a limestone boulder on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada. Taken on a walk around the neighborhood last Saturday afternoon.
