An Interesting Perspective

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: An Interesting Perspective prompt.

I thought about some of the long exposure photos I have taken down at the local bay since it was opened after being closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Splashes and Colour

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: A Splash of Colour prompt.

I initially went with a splash of colour before going with splashes in colour.

Clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay

I went down to Colpoy’s Bay 45 minutes before sunrise yesterday morning.

This is a 3 minute exposure of the clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay at dawn. Taken using the Live Composite setting on an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II. The base exposure was 1 second with a further 179 exposures of 1 second composited in the camera to record the movement of the clouds.

I suppose a Live Composite image is similar to a Collage which is the Cosmic Photo Challenge prompt this week.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: The Rough with the Smooth

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: The Rough with the Smooth prompt.

I had no ideas for this prompt until I was thinking about going down to the local bay for the sunrise. Which is when the idea of rough and smooth water occurred to me and at that point two photos were obvious picks for the challenge.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Our Feathered Friends

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Our Feathered Friends prompt.

With 30+ years of bird photos I decided to keep it simple and came up with the theme of size divided between North America and Europe.
