Four Of A Kind #3

Four motorcycles in fog on their way to the Dragon Motorcycle Rally in Snowdonia, North Wales.

Emerging from the fog

This week’s Travel Tuesday is only traveling back a couple of years.

I used to live in the town of Southampton on the Lake Huron shoreline in Ontario. A couple of summers ago I was back in the town and went down to the shoreline. It was foggy out over Lake Huron and when this green kayak appeared out of the fog it made the photo.

Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 16th March 2020

Monochrome Monday travels back to the very early 1980s as I continue digitising my slide and negative archives.

This photo of motorcycles in fog was taken in Snowdonia, North Wales as the riders were on their way to the Dragon Motorcycle Rally. A photo taken on Ilford XP1 when I was field testing it. I have posted a different version of the photo previously, this version is the whole negative rather than from a cropped print.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Leading Lines

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Leading Lines.

The prompt gave me a bit of a challenge, while I know about leading lines I rarely seem to use them. Going back through my archives it appears I have never used them regularly.

Clouds zigzag, leading the eyes to the rising sun on Colpoy’s Bay, Ontario.
