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

Cosmic Photo Challenge: My Summer Space

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: My Summer Space.

As it’s now been weeks since Ontario closed parks and public places I am missing my early morning visits to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline.

So I decided to go with a small selection of photos taken at the closest shoreline location to home. I also decided to go back six or seven years as there was lots of photos from that time frame that I had never used in a blog post. All the photos feature a sailboat that used to be moored on that section of Colpoy’s Bay at the time.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Blue

On reading the prompt for the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Pick a Colour I immediately thought of blue. In part because when I read the prompt I was picking photos for the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Yellow and blue is the complimentary colour to yellow.

I suspect that another reason for thinking blue was because of the blue, yellow and red butterfly garden ornaments I walk past on some of my walks around the neighborhood and that I have been taking photos of for the past few winters.

 

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Pick a Colour

Blue on blue. The giant blue butterfly garden ornament against a blue sky taken on a walk around the neighborhood last week.

 

Cee's Fun Foto Challenge: Roofs of Any Kind

Blue rain. Or at least raindrops on the roof of a blue car.

 

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Pick a Colour

Blue aluminium. Knurled aluminium anodized blue on the body of a small torch (flashlight).

 

CFFC: Basically One Colour

Blue dawn. A 60 second exposure at dawn allows the clouds to move across the sky over Colpoy’s Bay.

Blue ripples. The blue sky reflected in the ripples on Georgian Bay, Ontario.

Tuesday Photo Challenge

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Number

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Number and in this case the number is 59 during the first weekend of April 1982.

That was the race number for Team Bike in their first World Endurance Championship race, a 24 hour motorcycle race at the historic Le Mans race track in France.

 

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Number

Number 59 makes a pit stop in the middle of the night. The bike is refueled and the oil level in the motor is checked while the riders discuss something and a French official uses a torch to watch the pit crew.

 

Tuesday Photo Challenge - Number

Number 59 enters the start/finish straight at around midnight. 9 hours into the race, 15 to go.

 

Tuesday Photo Challeng - Number

Number 59 makes a dawn pit stop. Tyres are being checked to decide if either will need to be changed on the next pit stop while being watched by multiple French officials.

Berford Lake at Dawn: WWE #13

This is a contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #13 Photo Challenge.

This is Berford Lake on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada. Despite living quite close to the lake it’s not somewhere I visit very often. Access is via a small park which never seems to be in a good direction for photography in the blue and golden hours.
