Throwback Thursday

Lighthouse at Dusk

Throwback Thursday travels back to the Lake Huron shoreline in the early 2000s.

This is Chantry Island and its lighthouse at dusk in early winter. Chantry Island is just off the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.

Fence in the Snow at Dusk

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

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of a set of photos that date back 40 years to Christmas 1980.

I spent part of the Christmas holiday in a cottage near Silsden, West Yorkshire. One afternoon I set up a camera looking towards the nearest town and took a photo every 15 minutes as the sun set and darkness set in.

This is a monochrome conversion of a shot taken at dusk after the lights of the town came on.

Cosmic Photo Challenge

Cream of the Clouds

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge prompt Cream of the Crop.

Originally I decided to go with a small selection of the more memorable photos from this year. The first photo I picked was of clouds streaking across the sky at dusk. At that point the theme changed to some of the memorable clouds over the year.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Old and New

Clouds streaking across the sky at dusk. A photo from late spring and the first time I tried the Olympus Live Composite feature. The shot that changed the theme of this post.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: From an Unusual Angle

Taken on a walk around the neighborhood shortly after Ontario went into lockdown in the spring. With the lack of aircraft flying at the time the sky seemed bluer and the white, wispy clouds and white Paper Birch trees were a nice contrast against the blue.

2020: Red Streak
