Past Squares #21

July Squares: Strange Perspective on Shadows

Strange Perspective on Shadows

Trees and their shadows on farmland at Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England. Normally cropped to a panoramic format rather than a square.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Perspective Squares Month and is my day 21 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

Autumn Colour On The Hillside

Autumn colour on Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England. The hill is the southern end of a sandstone ridge sticking out of the Cheshire plain.

On a clear day you can see central Liverpool. The group of Silver Birch trees on top of the hill are on the site of an Iron Age hill fort known as Maiden Castle.

A photo from my archives, originally it was going to be a Throwback Thursday post. Instead it is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Hillside.

Two of a Kind: American Avocets

Two Of A Kind

Two summer plumage American Avocets feeding on a slough near Punnichy, Saskatchewan. Although the photo is as much about the ripples as the birds.

Plus I’ve always liked the two drops of water falling from the males bill. I say it’s a male because the bill is straighter than the bird in the background. The more curved bill means that the background bird is a female.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

Light on the tops of Silver Birch trees

Sunlight on the Tree Tops

Low sun illuminating the tops of Silver Birch trees on Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England. I like the gradation of light to dark down the frame.

Throwback Thursday

A Red Deer hind and her calf

Throwback Thursday: Red Deer hind and her calf

My Throwback Thursday post this week is a follow-up to last week’s post, a Red Deer stag with his harem.

This photo was taken later in the afternoon after I had spent time working my way closer to the herd.

This is a Red Deer (Cervus elaphus) hind (female) with her calf. A Red Deer fawn is known as a calf.

They were part of a stags harem but I was able to isolate them after working my way closer.

January Squares: Up #11

Singing Up in spring. A displaying male Yellow-headed Blackbird photographed near Punnichy, Saskatchewan. I’ve always liked the enthusiasm of the bird with its open bill and spread tail.
