Cosmic Photo Challenge: The Textures In Your World

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: The Textures In Your World.

My first thought was photos of texture on snow but I decided to expand on that and go with a selection of photos taken on various walks around the neighborhood over the past few months.

Windblown snow.

Early September saw me down on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline 45 minutes before sunrise so I could do some long exposures. This is a 60 second exposure to allow the clouds to move across the sky.

Six Word Saturday, a sixty second exposure at dawn.

 

The end of October saw the autumn colour mostly coming to the end while a few trees held on to their leaves.
