Fog On the Bay

Monochrome Monday is going back a week. I went down to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise but a fog bank rolled across the bay before the sun came up. That gave me the opportunity to shoot some monochrome compositions.

Fog On the Niagara Escarpment

Monochrome Monday is going back a week when I went down to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise. There was layers of fog on the Niagara Escarpment across the bay which caught my eye.

It was monochromatic when I took the photo so it was planned as as a possible post for Monochrome Monday. Another shot from when I was in a retro mood and was using a selection of manual focus primes.

The EMPTY signs amused me

Taken on a evening walk during week 32. These are Bear resistant garbage cans that are bolted to concrete slabs. The red pole is a marker to show snow plough operators where they are although the one on the right looks as if it’s had a tap from a plough.

The EMPTY signs on two of the cans amused me. I wondered if they were for the Bears so they wouldn’t bother trying to break into the empty ones. I know the reason for the signs but the thought of them being for the Bears still amuses me.

Low Cloud and Fog

Saturday morning saw me down at Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise. Before the sun came up low cloud covered the bay and what colour had been in the sky was gone.

As the sky was now grey and with fog on the Niagara Escarpment across the bay I started shooting images for Monochrome Monday.

Old barn in the evening

Having failed to get out for a sunrise in week 30 I took to some local back roads for the sunset mid week.

Despite some nice colour in the clouds to the west it was this old barn to the east that first caught my attention with the soft, evening light on it.

Raindrop In The Rain

Monochrome Monday goes all the way back to yesterday. I had set up a camera in the yard to photograph the birds and it started raining soon after I set up. The bird’s weren’t cooperating so I started shooting raindrops.

I spotted the lone raindrop on the end of a branch with rain falling around it and took a variety of shots with the plan of a monochrome conversion.

Ripples In Greyscale

Monochrome Monday goes all the way back to last Saturday morning and a visit to a fog shrouded Lake Huron. There was some nice ripples on what water was visible in the fog.

This is a monochrome conversion although there was hardly any colour in the original.
