Fisheye at Dawn

An ultra wide view of Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment at dawn last Sunday.

I used my fisheye lens to give me as wide a view of the bay as possible. I tried to make sure the horizon ran through the center of the frame to keep the fisheye distortion to a minimum.

Before the Leaves

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Before the Leaves prompt.

I thought about some of my walks around the neighborhood over the past couple of months. The first photo I selected worked nicely as a square crop so I decided to go with all square crops.

Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 15th February 2021

A recent walk around the neighborhood on one of those gray days when it wasn’t actually snowing.

On days like that I usually put a short telephoto lens on the camera with the intention of picking out detail. However, this time I put my fisheye lens on the camera with the intention of looking for interesting compositions of the trees against the sky.

I found the contrast between the evergreen Cedar trees on one side of the frame and the bare (mostly) Maple trees interesting.

Straight Up

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

It’s also a contribution to Becky’s January Squares on the theme of Up.

Looking up at some bare trees on the South Bruce Peninsula in winter. Taken on a recent walk around the neighborhood with a fisheye lens on the camera.

Fisheye Sunrise

A recent sunrise over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment taken on the Government Dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay.

There was such a spread of cloud and colour I reached for my fisheye lens to get as wide a view of the clouds and reflections as possible.

Monochrome Monday: 19th October 2020

A visit to the dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula on a grey, overcast morning saw me shooting long exposures in monochrome.

This is an extremely wide view of the dock and Colpoy’s Bay taken with a fisheye lens. It was a 30 second exposure which has smoothed out the water.
