A Nature Photographer’s Vehicles

This is my light hearted contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Anything to do with cars and trucks.

A look at a couple of this photographer’s dirty vehicles.

My ex British Telecom Bedford van being used as a mobile hide ( blind). The rear of the van was gutted so I could sleep in it and there was a mount for a tripod head attached to the inside of the drivers door.

 

Ford Ranger picku

The Ford Ranger pickup truck I drove in Saskatchewan. After this photo was taken it was fitted with a fibreglass tonneau cover to allow me to store “stuff” in the truck box. When I moved from Saskatchewan to Ontario it was ridiculously difficult swapping the Saskatchewan license plates for Ontario plates.

CFFC: Anything Painted

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Anything Painted, from a cabinet to peeling paint.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of this photo of raindrops on the roof of a car. I like the way the raindrops are picking up the colour of the blue paint.

Then I remembered this yellow painted bicycle decorating a garden shed.

CFFC: Doors, Drawers and Cabinets Knobs and Handles

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Doors, Drawers and Cabinets Knobs and Handles.

I had noticed the light from a table lamp catching these brass handles on a cabinet some time ago so this challenge was the incentive I needed to take a photo of them.

I kept the composition minimalist and the photo low key. I de-saturated the image a little and then added a vignette.

Male Yellow Warbler

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Yellow.

I thought about some of the bird species that have Yellow in their common English names. Here’s a male Yellow Warbler photographed at Point Pelee National Park, Ontario, the southern most part of the Canadian mainland.

CFFC: Green

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Green.

I discovered that I had rather a lot of green photos that would work for the challenge. So I decided to go with two very different photos featuring vastly different amounts of green.

One of my abstract trees created by vertically panning the camera during exposure.
