April Squares: Bright Kayak

Bright Kayak

A fluorescent green kayak emerging from fog on Lake Huron at Southampton, Ontario. A visit to the Lake Huron shoreline had found the lake shrouded in fog when this splash of colour appeared.

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 Bright Squares Month and is my day 19 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

Lines of Ice at Sunset

Photographed during the spring thaw on Lake Huron at Southampton, Ontario, Canada. I thought the ice formations were unusual so took lots of photos as the sun was setting and as dusk settled in.

Flying In Front Of Blue

An Osprey with a freshly caught White Sucker on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario shortly after sunrise in spring. A lucky photo, I had gone down to the shoreline for the sunrise and decided to hang around for a while to check out what summer birds had arrived.

Rest

One Word Sunday: Rest

A windblown Great Blue Heron resting on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario shortly after sunrise.

I spent over an hour with the bird, slowly working my way closer. After a while it was pretty much ignoring me and was still there when I headed home for some breakfast.

Interesting Cloud Shortly After Sunrise

Throwback Thursday: 26th August 2021

My Throwback Thursday post this week is traveling back 14 years to August 2007. It’s a follow up to of sorts to last week’s post, a male Belted Kingfisher flying against some interesting clouds.

Both photos were taken on the same morning and feature the same cloud formation.

This is Chantry Island and its lighthouse on Lake Huron at Southampton, Ontario shortly after sunrise.

Male Belted Kingfisher

Throwback Thursday: 19th August 2021

A male Belted Kingfisher flying along the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario shortly after sunrise 14 years and 1 day ago.

An unusual Throwback Thursday post this week. Normally a bird photo would be a Flora and Fauna Friday post but this isn’t really a bird photo.

It breaks a couple of bird photography rules, firstly the bird is flying away from me and secondly, the bird is too small in the frame.

But it isn’t really a bird photo, it’s a photo of some interesting clouds with a bird in the foreground.
