Low Light at Dawn

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Low light prompt.

On reading the prompt I thought of a couple of recent mornings when I got to a sunrise location early.

One Word Sunday

Night

I had a couple of ideas for the One Word Sunday prompt Night.

Then I remembered my fruitless visits to the dock at Colpoy’s Bay looking for Comet Neowise in the summer and one long exposure photo showing star trails in particular. Apparently the planet was passing through three different meteor showers at the time which explains the shooting stars.

Travel Tuesday

15 seconds at dawn

Travel Tuesday is visiting Berford Lake on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at dawn in the autumn.

Early November through to late February is the only time of year that the sun rises far enough to the south to rise over this part of Berford Lake.

This is a 15 second exposure of clouds moving across Berford Lake at dawn.

Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 19th October 2020

A visit to the dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula on a grey, overcast morning saw me shooting long exposures in monochrome.

This is an extremely wide view of the dock and Colpoy’s Bay taken with a fisheye lens. It was a 30 second exposure which has smoothed out the water.

Racing Across the Sky

A recent visit to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise. After overnight thunderstorms the wind was strong with storm clouds racing across the sky.

This 15 second exposure at dawn has recorded lots of movement in the clouds.

An Interesting Perspective

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: An Interesting Perspective prompt.

I thought about some of the long exposure photos I have taken down at the local bay since it was opened after being closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

346 seconds at Dawn

A 346 second exposure of clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay at dawn.

Taken using a 7 stop neutral density filter to get the length of exposure needed. I used the Live Time setting on an Olympus camera although I calculated the exposure rather than relying on the Live Time image in the viewfinder.
