A small selection of photos from 2019 that I edited for a post but never got used.
In no particular order.
Storm clouds over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment at sunrise a few days before the summer solstice.
Hosta leaves with a 25mm CCTV lens adapted to fit a mirrorless camera.
A giant red butterfly garden ornament in the snow in early December.
A monochrome study of a Dandelion clock taken with a 35mm CCTV lens adapted to fit a mirrorless camera.
Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment at sunrise in mid August.
Ivy leaves and rocks in the snow in early January.
This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Items with two M’s.
I was considering two photos for the challenge and rather than pick one decided to go with both. So I suppose that’s 4 M’s, or 6 if you count the two M’s in monochrome.
This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Not the Norm!
I spotted this One-eyed Tree Creature on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada at the weekend. After researching the species online I didn’t come up with much information other than that the scientific name for the species is Unumoculus arborcreutair.
This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Fashion.
It hadn’t really registered with me until last weekend but there seems to be a new fashion in this part of Ontario, decorating the sides of sheds.
I spotted this shed when out for a walk with the camera on Saturday morning and went back yesterday morning when the light was better. The sun seems to be wondering why it’s sitting in a flotation ring.
This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Yellow.
Having photographed some Black-eyed Susan’s a short time before the challenge was posted I decided that yellow flowers would be to obvious.
As yellow is associated with warmth I thought a winter photo would be interesting. I briefly considered a winter sunrise or sunset before deciding that was also to obvious.
Then I remembered the giant butterfly garden ornaments I photographed on some of my walks last winter. I was surprised that this giant Yellow Butterfly sitting in a patch of sunlight hadn’t headed south for the winter.
