Fisheye at Dawn

An ultra wide view of Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment at dawn last Sunday.

I used my fisheye lens to give me as wide a view of the bay as possible. I tried to make sure the horizon ran through the center of the frame to keep the fisheye distortion to a minimum.

Signs of Summer?

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Here Comes Summer prompt.

After November like weather last Thursday and Friday including snow in places there wasn’t much sign of summer when Dale posted the prompt. Then we had a frost yesterday morning when I went down to Colpoy’s Bay at dawn.

A boat tied up to the Government Dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula at dawn. The water in the bay is still very cold but there’s a few boats out on the water. There will be more in the summer once the water warms up.

An old barn in golden light shortly after sunrise. The grass in the foreground has to grow considerably before it’s ready to cut for hay in the summer. There was frost on the grass in places when I took the photo yesterday morning.

Government Dock

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Letter G anywhere in the word prompt.

As I had been down at the Government Dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay on Monday morning I decided to look back at some of my photos featuring it over the past six months or so.

Some Recent Photos

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

I decided to go with a small selection recent photos that I had edited to use in various posts and then never used.

Browns and Greens. An intentional camera movement photo of leaf litter and spring greenery.

Monochrome Fence. An old fence shortly after sunrise converted to monochrome using a blue filter to make the fence posts lighter than the surrounding vegetation. It almost looks like a black and white negative.

Dappled Sunlight on the Ivy. Taken on a recent walk around the neighborhood testing the TTArtisan 35mm lens.

Streaking Over the Dock. A two minute live composite exposure of clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise. With grey skies I was shooting with the intention of doing monochrome conversions.

Real and Not So Real

This is my take on Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Real vs Fake prompt.

What I mean by the title of this post is using the camera to produce images that couldn’t be seen by the naked eye.

CFFC: Real vs Fake

Clouds streaking across Colpoy’s Bay at dawn. A fake view due to using a 5 minute exposure using the Live Composite setting on an Olympus camera. It’s 300 one second exposures composited in the camera.

Golden light on the Government Dock. 25 minutes after the first photo was taken a real view of the rising sun illuminating the Government Dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula.
