There’s Always One

With no internet connection again I’m writing a couple of posts using recent photos while using the Wi-Fi at a park in the local town.

Some of the leaves on the South Bruce Peninsula have been changing colour for weeks but I noticed a solitary Maple leaf on a walk last Saturday morning.

A sign of autumn.

Maple Leaves in Monochrome

Monochrome Monday travels back a week or so to an early morning walk around the neighborhood.

This group of Maple leaves have been a regular subject this summer. On this occasion I was switching between colour and monochrome during the walk depending on the subject matter.

A group of backlit Maple leaves

Some backlit Maple leaves and another of my tests using various lenses to photograph flowers and plants. This group of leaves were a regular test subject in the spring and summer.

In this case I was using the 7artisans 35mm f/1.2 lens wide open on an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II.

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Under the Sun prompt.

I decided to go with a small selection of photos from this spring and summer when I was testing various lenses in a variety of types of sunlight.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Autumn

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Autumn.

For the month of July the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge has the theme of seasons. I decided to go with the same theme for each season, one bird photo, one scenic photo and one flora and fauna photo.

And just to complicate things further, one photo from my time in Ontario, Canada, one photo from my time in Saskatchewan, Canada and one photo from my tims in the U.K.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Water

Storm clouds and light beams at Loch Arkaig, Scotland. I was in Scotland to photograph autumn colour and autumn scenery. After three days of rain the clouds started breaking shortly before sunset.
