Getting to Know ICM

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Getting to Know You prompt.

Having initially considered various locations and nature subjects I thought about some of the ICM shots I had taken over the weekend.

I spent part of last weekend experimenting with various types of intentional camera movement using various lenses from an ultra wide angle lens to a macro lens.

The post is also a continuation of a the Lens-Artists prompt You Pick It earlier in the month.

One Word Sunday


This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday prompt Touch.

An impression of stacked firewood using intentional camera movement. An off the wall take on the challenge, technically all the firewood is touching adjacent pieces.

A Pale Pail

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pail or Pale prompt.

I had the idea of doing something with pale Paper Birch bark. So I went for a walk and couldn’t believe it when I found a pale pail being held down with a pale piece of Paper Birch firewood. The pail is protecting a plant from the frost and snow. Ten days ago it was probably mostly buried in snow.

On a side note, I noticed at the weekend that according to my WordPress statistics that I had made 99 Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge posts so this is number 100.

Monochrome Monday

Logs in Monochrome

Monochrome Monday travels back just over a week to a walk around the neighbourhood when we still had snow on the ground.

A neighbour had cut down a couple of Birch trees and stacked some of the logs ready for the fire pit in the spring.
