December ICM

Some intentional camera movement images from December 2021.

This will possibly be my last post to this blog. At the moment I can’t say if it will be the last ever or if I will simply be taking a break for an unknown length of time.

I decided some time ago that I needed to take a break but decided to go through to the end of 2021 before making the final decision.

Originally started 4 years ago to document my 52 week photo project in 2018 it was never really planned to extend beyond that. I didn’t really expect it to carry on or that I would make nearly 3 thousand posts.

Reflections on the Bay

This is my contribution to Patti’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Serene prompt.

The first thing that came to mind on reading the prompt was reflections on calm water. After initially considering images from various locations I decided to go with a small selection from Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Favourite Trees Of 2021

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Your best bits prompt.

I quickly decided to go with one photo from each season. Then, when I started short listing photos I noticed that there was a preponderance of images of trees.

So four of my favourite tree images from 2021.

CMMC: Contains two A

Winter. Intentional camera movement of trees in snow. An on going project, I decided to limit myself to just one ICM image for this post.

Six Word Saturday: A Group of Trees at Sunrise

Spring. A group of trees illuminated by the rising sun. Isolated with a long telephoto as I was photographing birds at the time.

Lens-Artists: Back Country Roads

Summer. An exploding tree? Light beams behind a tree shortly after sunrise courtesy of a mix of mist and smoke. The smoke was from wildfires burning in western Canada.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: A Cold Start

Autumn. Trees in snow on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise. Taken after the heaviest snowfall of the autumn. The snow has since thawed after a mild spell.

Autumn in the Studio

A week or two back I started a winter project photographing leaves and other items I have been picking up on my walks around the neighborhood.

I set up my table top studio and started experimenting with different lighting techniques and lenses.

This week Tina gives us the prompt You Choose for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. So after considering a few options I decided to go with a small selection of autumn in the studio photos.
