Dawn light on Lake Huron.

It’s Throwback Thursday and this week is a follow-up of sorts to last week.

Last week I posted one of the last images I shot on film. This week I’m posting an early digital image taken soon after the film image from last week.

I had been shooting film along side digital for about a while but went totally digital 11 years ago this month. The photo below is the eleventh shot taken with the Olympus E-410 I had just purchased.

After posting the photo on a photo forum I was approached by a camera magazine who wanted to use it. When I asked about their usage rates I was informed that they don’t pay for photos. Hard to comprehend that a magazine aimed at photographers expected them to give their work away. Needless to say, they didn’t get to use the photo.

So to the photo. It shows the Range Light at the mouth of the Saugeen River on the Lake Huron shoreline at Southampton, Ontario about 15 minutes before sunrise.

Week 11. A jumble of snow and ice.

Parts of Colpoy’s Bay, Ontario are covered with chunks of ice piled up by the wind before freezing again and being covered by fresh snow. Taken about 15 minutes before sunrise which accounts for the small band of pink in the clouds over the bay.
