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

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.
This is my day 30 contribution to Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge and I’m back to hyphenating words together for the penultimate day.
This is the range light at the mouth of the Saugeen River in Southampton, Ontario at dawn. There are two of these lights on the river, the other is up the river a few hundred yards and higher. The two lights can be used to guide boats into the dock in the mouth of the river from out on Lake Huron.

I have to admit that I had completely overlooked this photo. It was the eighth shot taken with my then new Olympus E-410. The fourth shot was used in a tourist guide to the area and I was approached by a camera magazine wanting to use the eleventh shot which I had posted online. I have no idea why I overlooked this shot until now.

I had a couple of ideas for the A Photo a Week Challenge: Three Angles before thinking of the old wooden piles sticking out of the water on Colpoy’s Bay at one of my sunrise locations.
A colourful sunrise reflected in the water around them.
Only the tips visible at dawn when the water level was high.
With their reflections on calm water.
