Holiday Fireworks

Travel Tuesday is traveling back three years this week.

Last weekend was the Ontario Civic Holiday long weekend. This is normally the weekend of the Wiarton Rotary Village Fair. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic this year’s fair was cancelled.

The Rotary Club traditionally put on a firework display at the end of the fair. In 2017 I went down to the dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay and photographed the fireworks from across the bay.

The Ferris wheel of the fair is the white circle below the fireworks. It shows how high the fireworks went and how large some of them were.

Friendly Friday: Summer Traditions

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Summer Traditions.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before thinking of the traditional Canada Day fireworks. I don’t know where or if there will be fireworks on Canada Day this year so here’s a look back at some from previous years.

As the 1st July fell within the week of this challenge I delayed posting until Canada Day.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Light and Dark

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Light and Dark.

The prompt got me thinking about some of the nighttime photos from my film archives that I started digitising last winter.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Up In The Air

This is my contribution to Nancy’s A Photo a Week Challenge: Up In The Air.

The prompt got me thinking about the times I have pointed the camera upwards to photograph clouds. Sometimes I leave a small strip of the landscape in to give the photo a sense of scale.

Weekly Prompts: Celebration

The first thought that came to mind when I read the Weekly Prompts: Celebration challenge was fireworks, more specifically Canada Day fireworks.

I suspect they came to mind because this winter I have been digitizing my slide archives and have recently made digital copies of two sets of Canada Day firework photos.
