Blue Flowers

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge prompt: Flowers: Blue or Purple.

I thought of two blue flowers that I find visually interesting, Borage and Chicory.

Flora and Fauna Friday: Borage flower and buds

A Borage flower in a garden in Nantwich, Cheshire, England in the mid 1990s. Photographed with a 300mm telephoto lens to isolate the flower and buds from the surrounding plants.

Paper Birch Bark and Snow

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: White or cream colours.

We got up to an inch or so of snow yesterday morning so I had my white. When I went for a walk I noticed the snow stuck to the trunk of a Paper Birch tree. That was my, sort of, cream.

A Local Eyesore

A contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: All about buildings: Commercial buildings or store fronts.

This is the former Foodland grocery store in the town of Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada.

Photographed last autumn when it had been standing empty for a couple of years. It’s an even bigger eyesore at the moment as the parking lot is currently being used for storage by the construction crew ripping up the highway through the town.

Barn and Mist at Sunrise

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: All About Buildings: Old buildings, barns, sheds, houses.

I pass this old barn on my way home from the local bay. If I have been down to the bay for the sunrise I check this barn and stop for a few photos if the light and/or weather is interesting.

Hoarfrost on Hart’s-tongue Fern

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Special Request: Wilting, dead or aging flowers and leaves.

This is a hoarfrost covered Hart’s-tongue Fern. A monochrome original I gave it a blue tint to give it a colder mood.
