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.

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Favourite Photos of 2019.
I considered a few themes for the challenge but in the end decided to just go with a selection of my favourites for the year.
A January thaw saw this Ivy appear as the snow melted.
Late March and Colpoy’s Bay is still frozen.
Early June and a male Purple Finch in the yard.
Mid July and an Orange Day-Lily photographed with a 25mm CCTV lens adapted to fit a mirrorless camera.
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.
The end of October saw the autumn colour mostly coming to the end while a few trees held on to their leaves.
Mid November saw me down on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise where breaking waves had splashed over a bush to form this ice sculpture.
In December Santa Claus brings up the rear of the Wiarton Santa Claus parade.
