Past Squares #16

October Squares: Past Squares

Lines of Ice at Sunset

Photographed during the spring thaw on Lake Huron at Southampton, Ontario, Canada. I thought the ice formations were unusual so took lots of photos as the sun was setting and as dusk settled in.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Lines Squares Month and is my day 16 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

Memorable Times

Amy’s prompt for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: It’s A Wonderful World got me thinking about some of the memorable times behind a camera.

Wide Open Spaces

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: In the big wide open spaces prompt.

I was considering a couple of approaches to the prompt before realising that there was one obvious choice, Saskatchewan, Canada.
