Orange water, blue ice.

The new Wits End Weekly Photo Challenge is Orange.

I had quite a few ideas for this challenge, from orange Lichen on a tree trunk to orange race cars. I thought an orange sunrise or sunset was to obvious until I thought of this set of photos where the ice reflecting the blue sky above and behind me contrasted with the water reflecting the orange sunset on the horizon.

This is remains of winter ice on Lake Huron in the spring at sunset. Taken from the Long Dock in Southampton, Ontario, Canada.

Why I disappeared for almost two weeks.

Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t posted since a Wordless Wednesday post on the 27th of March.

A couple of hours after I posted on the 27th I fell off a ladder and have spent the intervening days touring various hospitals having the resultant damage X rayed, CT scanned and partially repaired.

I have a fractured left Tibia now held together with four screws and multiple fractures of the right Humerus that are being left to heal naturally.

Unable to put any weight on my left leg or use my right arm it’s going to be a long healing process. I will be being moved to a rehab facility when a bed becomes available.

So this will be the last 2019 photo I will be posting for a while. Taken a few days before the accident it shows a frozen Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise with the Niagara Escarpment on the horizon.

Spring ice on Lake Huron.

Monochrome Monday is going back to one spring a decade or so ago. A section of Lake Huron at The Long Dock, Southampton, Ontario, Canada at dusk.

A  lot of the ice had broken up leaving chunks floating on the surface of the lake. Chantry Island and its lighthouse is on the horizon with some remains of The Long Dock on the right side of the frame.

The fourth day of Spring.

I went down to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise this morning. Between an ongoing health issue and limited access to the shoreline due to snow and ice it was the first chance I’ve had to get down there recently.

Not the most spectacular sunrise and it was bitterly cold down on the shoreline but it was still nice to be out with the camera. Ice on Colpoy’s Bay with snow on the shoreline and the Niagara Escarpment on the horizon.
