Photo Challenges


This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: Letter W at the end of the word prompt.

At first I completely blanked on words ending in W until I looked outside at the snow. A small selection of photos featuring snow taken over the years.

2020: Emotions

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. This week Patti gave us the prompt Emotions.

After some thought I decided to look back at 2020. A very strange year that saw me not make it back to the U.K., hospitalised in the spring and then there was the Covid-19 pandemic.

Silent Sunday: 26th January 2020

Mid January and I had postponed plans to visit the U.K. due to the beginnings of the Covid-19 pandemic. I was going for walks around the neighborhood little realising that in a couple of months that would be all I would be allowed to do.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Old and New

By the end of May I was going a little stir crazy being stuck at home. I set up in the yard in the biggest gap in the trees and tried to photograph the clouds at sunset. When that didn’t work out I started playing around with the Live Composite setting on the Olympus camera I was using. Live Composite recorded the clouds streaking across the sky at dusk.

Silent Sunday: 26th July 2020

July saw some of the Covid-19 restrictions eased and I could visit one of my sunrise locations on Colpoy’s Bay. Things seemed to be settling down into the new normal.

Wordless Wednesday: 30th December 2020

The end of December and Ontario was putting some Covid-19 restrictions back in place and I was going for walks around the neighborhood again. Less than two weeks into 2021 and Ontario has declared a provincial emergency with a stay-at-home order in place.

2020: It’s A Small World
