Lake Huron shoreline at dawn.

Throwback Thursday only travels back 12 years. At the time I was living in Southampton, Ontario, Canada on the Lake Huron shoreline.

I had recently purchased a new digital camera. The results from the camera had convinced me to finally stop shooting film alongside digital. Although I must admit that one of the reasons for stopping shooting film was the difficulty of getting transparency film processed. Slides had been coming back from processing labs covered in scratches and water marks for some time.

A driftwood tree trunk washed up on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton at dawn. Taken from close to the Long Dock looking north towards the flagpole and the mouth of the Saugeen River with some of the lights of the town shining.

Dawn on the shoreline.

More Canada Day fireworks.

As this is the first Throwback Thursday after Canada Day I thought this selection was rather appropriate.

Not as old a photo as some of my Throwback Thursday posts but there is a reason why I picked this shot. Taken 11 years ago, it was one of the last images I shot on film. I suspect it was on the last roll of film I exposed.

Taken on the Lake Huron shoreline, it’s the Canada Day firework display in Southampton, Ontario. I set up some distance down the lakeshore and photographed the fireworks with a long telephoto lens. The photo also show the Range Light at the mouth of the Saugeen River. The spit on the shoreline that the fireworks are being set off from in now under water as the level has risen since the photo was taken.
