Dark Greens of Late Summer

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Dark Greens September Colour topic.

Shades of green on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario a few days ago. I liked the light on the scrubland and the clouds over the greens.

Receding Into the Mist

2021: Scrubland in the mist

Trees and bushes receding into mist shortly after sunrise.

One Word Sunday

Empty

This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday prompt Empty.

Two empty bear resistant garbage cans on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada. The signs are to let the garbage truck operator know that they’re empty, not because the local Black Bears can read.

They’re bolted down to concrete pads to stop the bears flipping them over. The orange pole between them is to mark their location so the snow plough operator doesn’t hit them. Although it looks as if the plough has hit them in the past.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Ice, Ice Baby

The new A Photo a Week Challenge is Ice, Ice Baby, a prompt that I have rather a lot of options for.

I decided to go with two photos, the earliest photo of ice in my archives and the most recent.

Ice on the water in a wheel rut in a field gateway. Taken in the mid 1970s the lines in the ice caught my eye and made me think of contour lines on a map. Photographed a few hundred yards from my childhood home. I suspect that it was taken with the first serious camera I brought, a Russian made Zenit E.

An ice sculpture formed by waves splashing on the branches of a bush on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline. Taken a few weeks ago when I was down at the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise. Taken with my most recent camera, the small and light Sony a6000 with one of my DSLR lenses adapted to fit it.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Glow

The rising sun makes the patches of mist amongst the trees and bushes in a hay field glow.

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Crystal

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Crystal.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge until heading down to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise on Sunday morning. I found a bush on the shoreline with some interesting ice formations on it.

I spent more time photographing the ice formations than I did the sunrise. The ice formations are created by waves splashing on the bush and freezing.

Here I started isolating interesting sections with a telephoto lens.

Monochrome Monday

Morning Mist

Monochrome Monday was taken on the way home after photographing a sunrise at the local bay.

The low sun was illuminating the patches of mist amongst the trees and bushes in a hay field so I stopped and took some shots. I thought that the layers created by the mist between the trees and bushes would make an interesting monochrome conversion.
