January Squares: Last-light

This is my day 31 and therefore last contribution to Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge. A big thank you to Becky for running this fun challenge.

So I thought another made up, hyphenated title was in order to go with my post to start the month, First-light.

The sun sets over Lake Huron with Chantry Island on the horizon. Lake Huron is frozen and partially snow covered.

January Squares: Range-light

This is my day 30 contribution to Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge and I’m back to hyphenating words together for the penultimate day.

This is the range light at the mouth of the Saugeen River in Southampton, Ontario at dawn. There are two of these lights on the river, the other is up the river a few hundred yards and higher. The two lights can be used to guide boats into the dock in the mouth of the river from out on Lake Huron.

January Squares: Oak Tree by Moonlight

This is my day 28 contribution to Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge.

One of the earliest photos I have used for the January Squares. It dates back to the mid 1970s and was part of a slide presentation that got me a place at art school.

It shows a full moon shining through a gap in the branches of an Oak tree in Hatherton, Cheshire, England.

January Squares: Giant Orange Light

This is my day 27 contribution to Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge.

The setting sun taken with a long forgotten mix of telephoto lens and teleconverters. The tiny specks below the sun are very distant wildfowl flying to roost. Taken at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada in the autumn.

January Squares: Inspection-light

This is day 26 and the last Sunday of Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge so I’m going with a shot taken in the early hours of a Sunday morning.

This is a Team Bike pit stop at around 3 o’clock in the morning. One of the pit crew is using an inspection light to check the oil level in the engine while a French official uses a torch (flashlight) to make sure the British are following the rules to the letter. I’m using inspection light although they’re known as a trouble light in Canada.

January Squares: It’s Certainly Not Delight

A bit of a light hearted contribution for day 25 of Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge.

Shortly after taking photos of this windblown Great Blue Heron on the Lake Huron shoreline I nicknamed it Grumpy Heron. Its certainly not delighted about having its photo taken.
