Travel Tuesday

Cloudless at Dawn

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.

Some Favourites of 2020

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.

Travel Tuesday: 5th January 2021

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.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: From an Unusual Angle

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.

Travel Tuesday: Colpoy's Bay at night

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.

2020: Sunrise with a fisheye lens

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.

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.
