Famous

This is one of the more famous tourist attractions on the Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. This is one of the Flowerpots on Flowerpot Island. Flowerpot Island in in Georgian Bay and is part of the Fathom Five National Marine Park.

The Flowerpots are a type of sea stack formed over many years as the softer rock erodes leaving the harder pillar of rock standing.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Pick a Place

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Pick a Place.

Having moved around the U.K. and Canada over the decades I had quite a few ideas for the challenge. It was my recent One Word Sunday: Luck that made me think of the summer of 1985.

I spent part of that summer living in southern Ontario. All the photos are from that summer.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Sculpture

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Sculpture.

I gave the challenge a sideways look and decided to go with a natural sculpture and a manmade sculpture that wasn’t planned as a sculpture.
