Late Summer Maple Leaves

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Ordinary Everyday Objects prompt.

I had photographed various Maple leaves on a couple of recent walks around the neighborhood. It occurred to me that there wasn’t many things more ordinary and everyday in this part of Ontario, especially at this time of year. After all, there’s a red Maple leaf on the Canadian flag.

Walks On the South Bruce Peninsula

This week Amy has given us the theme Keep Walking for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

I thought the theme was ideal for a look back at some of the photos from my walks around parts of the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario this year.

2021: Orange Daylilies

Two Orange Daylilies in front of a large limestone boulder. I used a fast portrait lens to isolate the flowers and the limestone boulder to provide some negative space.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: In the Trees

I parked the car and walked along a back road when I saw the rising sun shining through mist over scrubland.

Lens-Artists: You Pick It!

One of my experiments with intentional camera movement on a walk around the neighborhood last spring.

2021: Displaying at Sunrise

A male Red-winged Blackbird displaying shortly after sunrise. Another walk along a back road on my way home from the sunrise at the local bay.

Negative Space Orange Daylilies

2021: Orange Daylilies

A portrait of two Orange Daylilies in front of a large limestone boulder.

I thought the background was different and used negative space to emphasize it. Another test of the TTArtisan 50mm f/1.2 lens for photographing flowers and plants.

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge: Orange.

Skyline

This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Skyline.

I decided to go with a local skyline with some interesting geology.

This is the Niagara Escarpment in autumn with Wiarton Marina below. This is the same escarpment the the Niagara River flows over at Niagara Falls on the Canada/U.S. border. The escarpment starts and ends in the U.S. after traveling across part of southern Ontario and forming the eastern side of the Bruce Peninsula. You can see sections of the limestone face of the escarpment through the trees.
