Splish, splash revisited

Week 9 of my 52 week photo project was titled Splish, splash and showed icicles being formed by the waves breaking on the shoreline at Colpoy’s Bay, Ontario.

I was originally considering the photo below but went with a tighter view of the icicles and a wave breaking.

This photo shows the tripod set up on the shoreline. By the time I was ready to pack up the equipment the lower legs were icing up and the leg closest to the water was frozen to the stones it was standing on. I only slipped on the stones once, I was more careful after that.

Week 11: A jumble of snow and ice

Parts of Colpoy’s Bay, Ontario are covered with chunks of ice piled up by the wind before freezing again and being covered by fresh snow. Taken about 15 minutes before sunrise which accounts for the small band of pink in the cloud over the bay.

Week 9: Splish, splash

Week 8 was ice on Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise. A week later and almost all the ice has either thawed or been blown out of the bay by the wind. I went down to Colpoy’s Bay and discovered that the waves were breaking on the shoreline and forming icicles on a section.

By the time I had finished photographing the action the tripod leg closest to the water was coated with ice and frozen to the stones it was standing on.

The break of day

This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is well timed, I was about to head out to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise when it was posted.
