Colourful April

This is my contribution to Amy’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Colourful April prompt.

I decided to look back at some of colourful April photos from my archives. One for each decade since the 1980s with as wide a variety of images as possible.

Skate Out to the Picnic Table

This is my contribution to Debbie’s Six Word Saturday challenge and to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Things found on a picnic table or in a park prompt.

There’s nothing on this picnic table but it is in a park. Strangely, I’m writing this sitting in the same park using the WiFi hotspot as we have no internet connection at home.

A Refrozen Colpoy’s Bay

My Travel Tuesday post this week is continuing my look back at some of the photos from the 52 week photo project I did in 2018.

Late winter and early spring of 2018 saw Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario going through a series of freeze and thaw cycles. Each time I went down there conditions had changed.

In this photo taken at dawn on the 30th March 2018 the bay had refrozen.
