Sunrise over Colpoy’s Bay.

My first visit to the bay since my accident. The physiotherapist has swapped the crutches for a cane (walking stick) which means that I am a bit more mobile.

I’m still having trouble using the camera in vertical orientation due to the limited range of motion in my right arm. As the camera was tripod mounted for the sunrise I simply released the shutter with my left hand.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Vista.

My contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Vista.

Originally I was planning on using a small selection of shots from some of the locations I have lived in over the years. However, the challenge is vista, not vistas so I decided to go with a single image.

I thought it was was going to be hard picking a single image but in the end there was an obvious choice.

Storm clouds and light beams, Loch Arkaig, Lochaber, Scotland. Taken in the autumn of 1985 this shot was later published worldwide by Olympus Japan and won a national photo contest in the U.K.

Storm Clouds over Lake Huron.

Monochrome Monday is going back around 15 years to when I was living in Southampton, Ontario.

Living a few blocks from Lake Huron meant I was regularly down there with a camera. This is a monochrome conversion of a shot I posted on Instagram recently. It occurred to me when I was posting it that it would make a nice monochrome shot.
