Past Squares #19

April Squares: Bright Kayak

Bright Kayak

A fluorescent green kayak emerging from fog on Lake Huron at Southampton, Ontario. A visit to the Lake Huron shoreline had found the lake shrouded in fog when this splash of colour appeared.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Bright Squares Month and is my day 19 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

Mist Over the Bay at Dawn

Getting Back to Basics: Mist Over the Bay at Dawn

Mist over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment at dawn recently. I rather like the way the lights on the opposite shoreline are illuminating the patches of mist while reflecting on the water.

The foreground lighting was provided by a streetlight, no need for light painting on this occasion. I was using a 2 second delay on the shutter release to allow me to get my shadow out of the shot.

An outing with my Getting Back to Basics Sony kit taken with the TTArtisan 17mm lens. This is my contribution to Jez’s Water Water Everywhere #99 photo challenge.

Autumn Colour On The Hillside

Autumn colour on Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England. The hill is the southern end of a sandstone ridge sticking out of the Cheshire plain.

On a clear day you can see central Liverpool. The group of Silver Birch trees on top of the hill are on the site of an Iron Age hill fort known as Maiden Castle.

A photo from my archives, originally it was going to be a Throwback Thursday post. Instead it is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Hillside.

Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 18th October 2021

Monochrome Monday: 18th October 2021

Storm clouds over Wiarton Marina and the Niagara Escarpment on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario recently.

I had a camera bag in the car when I noticed the cloud over the bay and made a short detour to Bluewater Park in the town of Wiarton. With little colour in the scene I was shooting with the intention of doing monochrome conversions.
