Some Autumn Maple Leaves

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Let’s hear it for the leaves prompt.

Most of the leaves in this part of Ontario have been off the trees for a while now. However, a few weeks ago I started picking up interesting leaves with the intention of doing some table top studio photos using them. The fallen leaves have been buried under snow a few times since I started collecting them.

A Day of My Week

This week Amy has given us the prompt A Day of My Week for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

I had the idea of putting together a small camera kit and using it for everything I photographed on Sunday.

I put the kit together on Saturday evening only to change my mind and put a different kit together early Sunday morning before heading down to the local bay for the sunrise.

The kit I used was a small mirrorless Sony and four manual focus prime lenses. I decided that the post would be one photo taken with each of the lenses during the day.

Photo 2. Shortly after sunrise I took close-ups of lichen on some of the boulders along the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline. Taken with the 35mm standard lens.

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 Bright Squares Month and is my day 25 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

Getting Back to Basics: A Splash of Colour In the Treetops

Light and Shade Under the Maples

Six Word Saturday: Light and Shade Under the Maples

Sometimes it’s just about the light.

In this case the light under a group of Maple trees around Fairy Lake in Southampton, Ontario. I was surprised by how green the leaves were considering that some of the Maple trees in the area had been changing colour for weeks.

A recent walk around Southampton with just a camera and one manual focus prime lens, in this case the TTArtisan 35mm lens.

The Ordinary Maple Leaf

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: The Ordinary prompt.

I hadn’t given the prompt much thought when I went for a walk around the neighborhood last Sunday afternoon. I set out with a wide angle lens on the camera and a short telephoto in a pocket. I probably hadn’t walked 100 yards before deciding I had picked the wrong lens and swapped to the telephoto.

I should add that it’s very rare for me to take a second lens on one of my walks but I’m glad I did last Sunday. All the photos in this post are from that walk with the short telephoto on the camera.
