My contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Endings.
I had a few ideas for the challenge before deciding to go with a selection of photos taken at the end of the day.
Old barn and long shadows at the end of the day, Ontario, Canada.
Male Common Pochard at the end of the day, Lancashire, England.
Black-headed Gulls in winter roost at the end of the day, Cheshire, England.
White-tailedDeer at the end of the day, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Canada Geese flying to roost at end of the day, Lake Huron, Ontario, Canada.
St James’ Church, Audlem, Cheshire, England in silhouette at the end of the day.
Lines of ice on Lake Huron, Ontario, Canada at the end of the day.
Monochrome Monday is going back around 15 years to when I was living in Southampton, Ontario.
Living a few blocks from Lake Huron meant I was regularly down there with a camera. This is a monochrome conversion of a shot I posted on Instagram recently. It occurred to me when I was posting it that it would make a nice monochrome shot.

Monochrome Monday is going back to last autumn and a visit to the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.
I was photographing the boulders that surround Dominion Lookout at the bottom of High Street. I isolated this boulder because of the multiple white quartz lines running through it as I thought I would make an interesting monochrome conversion.
The new Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is Harmony.
This got me thinking about the colour combinations in some of my photos.
Starting with a winter sunset where the predominantly cool blue foreground and sky is split by the warm yellows and reds of the setting sun. It’s a section of the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area in Saskatchewan, Canada.
A male Rose-breasted Grosbeak. You may wonder why I have included this in my selection. It’s because I planned the shot, timing it so that the bird was in the shade with sunlight illuminating the background.
Autumn colour with a blue sky background. Taken with a fisheye lens to get as much of the foliage in the frame as possible.
Finally, lines of ice on Lake Huron at dusk. The remains of the winter ice is reflecting the blue sky overhead while the water is reflecting the colour of the sky above the horizon.
