Six Word Saturday: Storm Clouds Passing the Government Dock

A three minute live composite exposure of clouds passing the Government Dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay at dawn recently.

Another morning with lightning flashing behind the clouds up and down the Bay.

Lights Along the Opposite Shoreline

2021: Lights Along the Opposite Shoreline

Lights along the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at dawn recently. The streaks of light along the far shoreline are from a succession of fishing boats heading out to compete in an end of summer fishing derby.

It was actually much darker than it appears to be by the photo, I was guessing the framing in the dark.

Going Wide

This is my contribution to Patti’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Going Wide prompt.

A great theme for me as I have been testing two wide angle lenses this summer, a 17mm lens and a 7.5mm fisheye lens. Both by TTArtisan and recent additions to my back to basics kit.

It’s also an ideal prompt for me to use recent photos as I’ve been trying to avoid my archives as much as possible recently.

A variety of clouds over Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario over the past few weeks.

34 Minutes Before Sunrise

2021: 62 Seconds 34 Minutes Before Sunrise

Clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at dawn this morning.

For a change this summer they weren’t storm clouds. I wasn’t expecting this much cloud as the local weather station was reporting mainly clear skies when I got up for the sunrise.

A 62 second exposure achieved by me standing behind the camera holding the shutter release down, because I’ve misplaced the remote release for the camera.

Storm Clouds 28 Minutes Before Sunrise

Six Word Saturday: Storm Clouds Moving Over the Bay

Storm clouds over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Taken approximately 28 minutes before sunrise last Monday morning, there was lightning flashing behind the clouds to the north and south.

Summer Storms

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Weather prompt.

Having had quite a few storms this summer I decided to go with a small selection of storm clouds over Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at dawn and sunrise. At least two of the photos were taken during thunderstorms.

I added some “film grain” when doing the monochrome conversion as it seemed appropriate for the subject.
