Tuesday Photo Challenge – Stone

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

Currently living on the Bruce Peninsula, a limestone promontory separating Lake Huron from Georgian Bay there’s rather a lot of stone around here. The eastern side of the peninsula is formed by the Niagara Escarpment. The same escarpment that the Niagara River flows over at Niagara Falls.

Autumn colour on a section of the Niagara Escarpment. Some of the limestone face of the escarpment is visible through the trees with fallen boulders along the shoreline.

A Dandelion growing on a boulder

My contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Flower of Any Kind.

With Thursday afternoon warm and sunny I went for a short walk looking for an image for this challenge. With being on crutches and having limited mobility in the right shoulder I’m having trouble framing and composing as accurately as I would like.

I spotted this solitary Dandelion growing in a small patch of dirt trapped in a boulder. It was a mostly monochrome image apart from the Dandelion so I did a selective colour treatment to remove a little more of the colour.
