CFFC: Anything to do with Boats

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Anything to do with Boats.

I decided to keep it simple and go with a couple of favourites.

 

Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: In Transit

This Canadian flag is flying from the stern of a glass bottomed boat sailing out of Tobermory on the northern tip of the Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. It tours some sunken wrecks before visiting Flowerpot Island, named for two rock formations that resemble flower pots.

 

Cosmic Photo Challenge: My Summer Space

A sailboat on Colpoy’s Bay, Ontario at dawn. The sailboat used to be moored in Colpoy’s Bay each summer until three or four years ago. There were times I didn’t want it in my photos but now it’s not there I miss it.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: A Quiet Moment

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: A Quiet Moment.

 

Cee's Fun Foto Challenge: Winter

Chantry Island lighthouse at sunset in the winter. No one else was down on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario given the weather and knee deep snow.

 

One Word Sunday: Ice

A frozen and partially snow covered slough at sunrise with a weak sun pillar. Photographed on a quiet gravel road near Punnichy, Saskatchewan.

 

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Delicate Colours

A mist shrouded Colpoy’s Bay at dawn. I was the only person down at that section of the Colpoy’s Bay, Ontario shoreline.

 

A Photo a Week Challenge: Up In The Air

A section of the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area, Saskatchewan at sunset in the autumn. Not another human being for miles.

WWE #32: Crescent Moon at Dawn

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #32 Photo Challenge.

This is a photo of Colpoy’s Bay at dawn from June last year. If I was to set up a tripod and start taking photos this year I would be risking a hefty fine. It would be perfectly acceptable to walk along the shoreline, even in a group, but to stand still, completely alone is unacceptable according to the local council.

 

WWE #32: Crescent Moon at Dawn

A crescent moon hangs over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment on the South Bruce Peninsula at dawn. An 8 second exposure has blurred the water and the leaves on the trees.

Throwback Thursday

Lake Huron at Dawn

Throwback Thursday travels back to 2003 and an atmospheric phenomenon at dawn.

Visible shortly before sunrise and shortly after sunset the Belt of Venus is a pinkish band above the horizon. It is produced when light from the sun is backscattered by particulates in the air.

In this photo of Lake Huron with Chantry Island on the horizon the blue band directly above the horizon is the earth’s shadow with the Belt of Venus above that.

Throwback Thursday: 14th May 2020
