Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Leading Lines

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Leading Lines.

The prompt gave me a bit of a challenge, while I know about leading lines I rarely seem to use them. Going back through my archives it appears I have never used them regularly.

Clouds zigzag, leading the eyes to the rising sun on Colpoy’s Bay, Ontario.

A row of trees disappear, leading the eyes towards the sun shining through the fog.

Foggy trees.

Clouds at -40 Degrees

Throwback Thursday travels back to Saskatchewan in the late 1990s with one of the slides I made a digital copy of over the Christmas period.

For anyone wondering if that’s -40 Celsius or Fahrenheit it’s both, they’re the same at -40.

This is a section of frozen marsh at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada at dusk. It was my first winter in Saskatchewan which is probably why I remember the temperature. Strangely enough, I don’t remember it feeling particularly cold but I was 22 years younger then. These days I don’t like -10°C although the damp cold in Ontario seems to chill you more than the dry cold I remember from Saskatchewan.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Special Spot Shots

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Special Spot Shots.

I ran through a list of locations in my head and one location quickly made it to the top of the list. Last Mountain Lake, also known as Long Lake is a prairie lake in south central Saskatchewan, Canada. The northern end of the lake is a National Wildlife Area which includes the Last Mountain Lake Bird Sanctuary.

I thought I would put a post together covering a 12 month period.
