Low Light at Dawn

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Low light prompt.

On reading the prompt I thought of a couple of recent mornings when I got to a sunrise location early.

Splashes of Colour at Sunrise

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: A Splash of Colour prompt.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before heading down to the dock at Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise on Saturday morning. It was mostly cloudy and grey over the bay with small splashes of colour.

That made me think of this challenge and some other recent cloudy sunrises.

One Word Sunday

Whatchamacallit

When I read the prompt for One Word Sunday: Whatchamacallit I had a couple of ideas for the challenge.

My first thought was a photo of a calliope, a steam powered fairground organ. That was followed by thoughts of old farm equipment. Then I thought about some recent photos featuring the dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Mostly I have seen or heard it called the government dock but it’s also known as the public dock, the pier and simply the dock. I don’t know why it’s known as the government dock or why no one seems entirely sure what it should be called.

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.

The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow prompt.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before considering the word tomorrow in the prompt. I decided to head down to the dock at Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise the day after the prompt was posted and see what I came up with.
