Real and Not So Real

This is my take on Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Real vs Fake prompt.

What I mean by the title of this post is using the camera to produce images that couldn’t be seen by the naked eye.

CFFC: Real vs Fake

Clouds streaking across Colpoy’s Bay at dawn. A fake view due to using a 5 minute exposure using the Live Composite setting on an Olympus camera. It’s 300 one second exposures composited in the camera.

Spring Sunrise

My Travel Tuesday post this week returns to my look back at some of the overlooked photos from the 52 week photo project I did as part of this blog in 2018.

Focusing on the Details

This week Patti has given us the prompt Focusing on the Details for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

As Ontario is currently under the third Covid-19 lockdown I decided to look back at some of the details I photographed on my walks around the neighborhood while under the various lockdowns.

Golden Light on the Government Dock

Another photo from Sunday morning. Once the sun appeared I stopped talking long exposures of the clouds streaking across Colpoy’s Bay.

I took the neutral density filter off the lens and photographed the golden light illuminating the Government Dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula. The rusty steel piles down the side of the dock picked up the golden light nicely.

Spring Greens

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: My green world prompt.

Having returned to winter like weather for the past couple of weeks there’s not a lot of signs of spring in this part of Ontario. So here’s some recent greens but not necessarily signs of spring.

As a side note, the first 3 photos were taken on two walks testing a copy of the TTArtisan 35mm f/1.4 lens. Initial impressions are good but I need more time than two short walks to get a feeling for a lens.
