Throwback Thursday

Range Light at Sunrise

Throwback Thursday this week is continuing my look back at some of the photos taken when I was living in Southampton, Ontario.

This is the range light at the mouth of the Saugeen River on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton at sunrise. Taken in September 2007.

Saturday Bird

Juvenile Red Knot

My Saturday Bird this week is a juvenile Red Knot (Calidris canutus) resting on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada.

This individual hatched from an egg in the summer and is now heading south for the winter. It has stopped on the shoreline to feed and rest having already flown from northern Canada. It could travel as far as the southern tip of South America for the winter.

Belt of Venus around Lake Huron

Throwback Thursday travels back 13 years to September 2007.

This is Lake Huron with Chantry Island on the horizon shortly before sunrise. The band of colour just above the horizon is known as the Belt of Venus. It is an atmospheric phenomenon sometimes visible shortly before sunrise or shortly after sunset.
