Wave and Icicles

Travel Tuesday is continuing my look back at some of the photos from the 52 week photo project I did in 2018.

This week I’m traveling to a section of the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise to photograph waves forming icicles.

A week earlier Colpoy’s Bay was frozen but after some thawing the wind had pushed the ice out of the bay. A week after this photo was taken the wind had pushed the ice back into the bay and it was frozen again.

The tripod was frozen to the shoreline when I packed it away.

Little and Large Drops

My Monochrome Monday post this week is a photo of the icicles that I have been photographing on and off for a couple of weeks.

We had a mild spell in the middle of last week and the icicles started thawing and dripping. I caught some of the drops as they were falling.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Tomorrow

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Tomorrow prompt.

On reading the prompt I decided that whatever the weather I was going to go for a walk around the neighborhood tomorrow.

As it turned out it was sunny but cold with a wind making it feel even colder. I put a short telephoto lens on the camera and went to see what I could find.

Camera Support

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge: Support.

As is frequently the case with me I took a sideways look at the prompt. Because the first thing that came to mind on reading the prompt was camera tripods.

I am possibly something of a rarity these days in that I still frequently use a tripod or other form of camera support.

Using my home made ground pod allows me to support a telephoto lens while getting down to eye level with birds and mammals.

A tripod set up on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise photographing waves forming icicles. Two of the tripod legs were frozen to the pebbles by the time I packed up the equipment.

Icicles

After around 48 hours of snow over the Christmas holiday it warmed up and rained for a few hours before the temperature dropped again. As a result there was some large icicles forming in places when I went for a walk yesterday.

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #57 Photo Challenge. With four drops of water, ice and snow on conifers in the background I’m well covered on water for challenge.
