Famous

This is one of the more famous tourist attractions on the Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. This is one of the Flowerpots on Flowerpot Island. Flowerpot Island in in Georgian Bay and is part of the Fathom Five National Marine Park.

The Flowerpots are a type of sea stack formed over many years as the softer rock erodes leaving the harder pillar of rock standing.

Luck

I had a few ideas for the One Word Sunday challenge Luck.

Some lucky wildlife encounters, some lucky weather conditions. Then I remembered this shot. Taken in the late summer of 1985 after spending part of the summer in southern Ontario shooting wildlife, landscape and travel photos for photo libraries.

I wasn’t expecting anything of this shot, or the others from the evening. I was simply using up the roll of Kodachrome in the camera prior to taking all my exposed film to the Kodachrome lab in Toronto the next day. In the end it was included in a set of shots in a photography magazine that published a portfolio of my work a couple of years later.

I spent part of the summer in Ontario shooting travel, landscape and nature images for British photo libraries. Decades later I’m now living about 30 minutes north of where this photo was taken.
