Late Summer Maple Leaves

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Ordinary Everyday Objects prompt.

I had photographed various Maple leaves on a couple of recent walks around the neighborhood. It occurred to me that there wasn’t many things more ordinary and everyday in this part of Ontario, especially at this time of year. After all, there’s a red Maple leaf on the Canadian flag.

Rest

One Word Sunday: Rest

A windblown Great Blue Heron resting on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario shortly after sunrise.

I spent over an hour with the bird, slowly working my way closer. After a while it was pretty much ignoring me and was still there when I headed home for some breakfast.

Walks On the South Bruce Peninsula

This week Amy has given us the theme Keep Walking for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

I thought the theme was ideal for a look back at some of the photos from my walks around parts of the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario this year.

2021: Orange Daylilies

Two Orange Daylilies in front of a large limestone boulder. I used a fast portrait lens to isolate the flowers and the limestone boulder to provide some negative space.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: In the Trees

I parked the car and walked along a back road when I saw the rising sun shining through mist over scrubland.

Lens-Artists: You Pick It!

One of my experiments with intentional camera movement on a walk around the neighborhood last spring.

2021: Displaying at Sunrise

A male Red-winged Blackbird displaying shortly after sunrise. Another walk along a back road on my way home from the sunrise at the local bay.

Negative Space Orange Daylilies

2021: Orange Daylilies

A portrait of two Orange Daylilies in front of a large limestone boulder.

I thought the background was different and used negative space to emphasize it. Another test of the TTArtisan 50mm f/1.2 lens for photographing flowers and plants.

Point

A sandy, rocky point on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario at sunrise. It’s pointing towards Chantry Island and its lighthouse on the horizon and on to Michigan on the other side of the lake.

Photographed in the mid 2000s, the water level in Lake Huron has since risen and this is all under water now.
