Perspective on a Gravel Road

This is my day 8 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective.

This is a gravel road on the Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. Photographed in the summer of 1985 little did I know that 20 odd years later I would be living in the area.

The plateau on the horizon is a section of the Niagara Escarpment.

CFFC: Vanishing Point or Leading Lines

A contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Vanishing Point or Leading Lines.

My first thought was of roads disappearing off in the distance.

Having spent part of the winter making digital copies of my slide archives I had found several photos of roads suitable for the challenge so I decided to go with my initial thought.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Opposite Weather

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Opposite Weather.

I was in a monochrome mood when putting this post together. Two photos taken six months and on opposite sides of the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario.

Tuesday Photo Challenge

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.

Monochrome Monday

Georgian Bay shoreline.

Monochrome Monday is a section of the Georgian Bay shoreline close to the Cape Croker Lighthouse.

Cape Croker is about halfway up the eastern side of the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario, Canada. This section of the shoreline consists of pieces of Limestone in varying sizes.
