Past Squares #24

January Squares: Up #12

January Squares: Up #12

Star trails over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. I had gone down to the bay looking for Comet Neowise and set up the camera to record the star trails.

With looking for the comet I didn’t realise that the camera had recorded over a dozen meteors. I later learned that Earth was passing through three meteor showers at the time. The light along the shoreline are a vehicle on Mallory Beach Road.

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 Up Squares Month and is my day 24 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

As Summer Fades

Two signs of summer coming to an end on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario yesterday morning.

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: As Summer Fades prompt.

Light trails from fishing boats on Colpoy’s Bay at dawn. Most of the fishing boats on the bay are probably competing in an annual end of summer fishing derby.

The sun rising over the Niagara Escarpment on the other side of Colpoy’s Bay. Around the summer solstice the sun rises over the mouth of the bay. As the days shorten and autumn approaches the sun starts rising progressively more to the south.

Fisheye Light Trails

2021: Colpoy's Bay at Dawn

Light trails around Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at dawn recently.

A two or three minute live composite exposure to record the light trails and some movement in the clouds.

The main light trail is a vehicle on Mallory Beach Road. There’s also a fishing boat moving along the eastern side of the bay and another fishing boat in front of White Cloud Island.

Another test of the new TTArtisan 7.5mm fisheye lens.
