Cosmic Photo Challenge: Set in Stone

I had a couple of ideas for the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Set in Stone.

Then on Sunday morning I was down at the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise and forgot the ideas I had been considering. I discovered that some of the boulders along the shoreline were heavily encrusted in ice from the waves breaking over them.

So rather than Set in Stone these are Stones Set in Ice.

I didn’t notice the two black eyes and little button nose until I was editing the photo.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Colour My World

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Colour My World.

After abandoning the first couple of ideas for the challenge I decided that I would go with a photo from each season. I then decided to try to use only shots close to home taken on my various walks with a camera over the past year.

Autumn leaves amongst the Ivy leaves at the end of November. Taken with a 50mm CCTV lens adapted to fit a small mirrorless camera.

A group of Coneflowers in the middle of August. Taken with a 12mm lens on a small mirrorless camera. I was testing it to be the wide angle lens in the lightweight kit of three manual focus primes I was putting together.

Colourful Lichen and Moss on a limestone boulder in early June. Taken with a small mirrorless camera and plastic kit lens it came with. I had only been discharged from the rehab unit for about a week and was still on crutches at that point.
