Vanishing Point.

The new Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge is Vanishing Point.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before thinking of some shots from last autumn. I had gone down to the dock at Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise but it was thick cloud with no colour in the sky so I shot with the intention of converting the shots to monochrome.

It was my first chance to visit the dock after it had been closed for repairs. I was in a retro mood and grabbed my small camera bag with with four manual focus prime lenses. This shot was taken with my fisheye lens, a fairly recent addition to my retro kit. The kit was originally three lenses, a wide angle, a standard lens and a telephoto. Similar to the kit I used as a photography student in the late 1970s.

Spot the Great Blue Heron.

The new Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is Signs.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before thinking of some photos of a Great Blue Heron fishing behind a no fishing sign.

In some shots I focused on the bird, others I focused on the sign. For this challenge I picked a shot where the sign was in focus and the Heron appears to be laughing at the sign.

Why I disappeared for almost two weeks.

Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t posted since a Wordless Wednesday post on the 27th of March.

A couple of hours after I posted on the 27th I fell off a ladder and have spent the intervening days touring various hospitals having the resultant damage X rayed, CT scanned and partially repaired.

I have a fractured left Tibia now held together with four screws and multiple fractures of the right Humerus that are being left to heal naturally.

Unable to put any weight on my left leg or use my right arm it’s going to be a long healing process. I will be being moved to a rehab facility when a bed becomes available.

So this will be the last 2019 photo I will be posting for a while. Taken a few days before the accident it shows a frozen Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise with the Niagara Escarpment on the horizon.

Weathered and Worn.

The new Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is Weathered or Worn.

First, some boulders placed around the base of Dominion Lookout on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario. They’re placed there to protect the Lookout from erosion by the water. The various patterns, colours and textures caught my eye.

Now the remains of a fallen tree lying in a ditch on the South Bruce Peninsula. It was the range of colours in this autumn detail that caught my eye.

Finally some weathered and worn wooden pilings sticking out of Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise.

The fourth day of Spring.

I went down to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise this morning. Between an ongoing health issue and limited access to the shoreline due to snow and ice it was the first chance I’ve had to get down there recently.

Not the most spectacular sunrise and it was bitterly cold down on the shoreline but it was still nice to be out with the camera. Ice on Colpoy’s Bay with snow on the shoreline and the Niagara Escarpment on the horizon.
