This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: January Colour – Pink prompt.
Travel Tuesday this week is traveling back just over three years to Colpoy’s Bay at dawn in late autumn.
The water level in the bay has risen since this photo was taken and the old wood piles are now less visible.
Looking Up at the storm clouds.
This is my day 7 contribution to Becky’s January Squares on the theme of Up.
Storm clouds over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at dawn.
This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Favourite Images of 2020 prompt.
Once I started selecting some favourites I realised that they were far to random to build a theme around. So I decided to go with a small selection of photos of various skies, one from each season.
Early January saw me down on a snow and ice covered section of the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for my first dawn photos of 2020.
Late March saw Ontario in lockdown and I was restricted to walks around the neighborhood. Paper Birch trees against a blue sky made bluer by the lack of aircraft flying at the time.
July saw some of the lockdown restrictions eased and Comet Neowise in the sky. As a result I headed down to Colpoy’s Bay to photograph star trails while missing the comet on every attempt.
November saw me down on the Government Dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula for the sunrise. The light and clouds were so widespread I used my fisheye lens to include as much of the sky as possible.
This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: A Cold Start prompt.
A recent cold start with a bitterly cold wind coming off the water. Dawn over Berford Lake on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada.
A cold start in the late 1990s. Sunrise reflected in a frozen and partially snow covered slough near Punnichy, Saskatchewan, Canada.
A cold start in the early 1980s. A snow and hoarfrost covered Oak tree shortly after sunrise at Hatherton near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.
Up before the sun.
This is my contribution to day 1 of Becky’s January Squares on the theme of Up.
