This week Patti gave use the prompt From Large to Small for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.
This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Art for art’s sake prompt.
I thought about some of the abstract images I had made in the winter. As a result I decided to make the post about some of the photos featuring snow
The new A Photo a Week Challenge prompt is Off-Center.
A small selection of off centre photos from the last six months or so.
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.
2000s. A frozen and partially snow covered Lake Huron in front of Chantry Island and its lighthouse at sunset. Southampton, Ontario, Canada.
1970s. Trees in snow at Hatherton near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.
1990s. Snow and hoarfrost covered farmland near Punnichy, Saskatchewan, Canada at sunrise.
2020s. Autumn leaf trapped in snow on a conifer branch. South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
