Late Summer Maple Leaves

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Ordinary Everyday Objects prompt.

I had photographed various Maple leaves on a couple of recent walks around the neighborhood. It occurred to me that there wasn’t many things more ordinary and everyday in this part of Ontario, especially at this time of year. After all, there’s a red Maple leaf on the Canadian flag.

Growing Up A Utility Pole

2021: Growing Up A Pole

Ivy growing up a utility pole on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Taken on a recent walk around the neighborhood when I was looking for flowers and plants to photograph with the TTArtisan 50mm lens. I thought the light on the Ivy was rather nice.

Tree Trunk Details

A couple of close ups spotted on recent walks around the neighborhood.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Close Up or Macro prompt.

CMMC: Close Up or Macro
Some lichen growing on tree bark. I liked the way the texture and colour of the lichen almost blends in with the bark.

Ivy growing up a tree trunk. There’s something about ivy growing up a tree trunk that makes me stop and take a couple of photos.

Some Recent Photos

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Freestyle prompt.

I decided to go with a small selection recent photos that I had edited to use in various posts and then never used.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Freestyle

Browns and Greens. An intentional camera movement photo of leaf litter and spring greenery.

Monochrome Fence. An old fence shortly after sunrise converted to monochrome using a blue filter to make the fence posts lighter than the surrounding vegetation. It almost looks like a black and white negative.

Dappled Sunlight on the Ivy. Taken on a recent walk around the neighborhood testing the TTArtisan 35mm lens.

Streaking Over the Dock. A two minute live composite exposure of clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise. With grey skies I was shooting with the intention of doing monochrome conversions.
