October Squares: A Variety of Lines at -40 degrees

This is my contribution to day 19 of Becky’s October Squares: Lines photo challenge.

Lines of cloud, a horizon line and reeds forming lines. A frozen section of marsh at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada in the winter.

For anyone wondering if it was -40° Celsius or Fahrenheit it was both as they are the same at -40.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: A Vision of Tomorrow/Through the Eyes of Yesterday

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: A Vision of Tomorrow/Through the Eyes of Yesterday.

It’s well known that tomorrow never comes but winter will be arriving in Ontario at some point in the near future. So for the “through the eyes of yesterday” I went with a couple of photos from two years ago. Both were taken when it was still autumn but show what was and is coming.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Texture.

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Texture.

At first I considered the obvious subjects, tree bark, ripples on water. It was the ripples on water that made me think of snow and ice.

Ice on Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise in early spring. At this point the ice had thawed a little and started breaking up before refreezing.

CFFC: Water

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Water.

Living close to Lake Huron and Georgian Bay in Ontario, Canada and having lived close to the Quill Lakes and Last Mountain Lake in Saskatchewan in the late 1990s I have rather a lot of photos featuring water to pick from.

So I had a ponder about the challenge and thought about the various states of water. So here is water in various states at different times of the year. All the shots are of Colpoy’s Bay, a bay on the much larger Georgian Bay and taken around sunrise.
