Week 27. Mist at sunrise.

Saturday morning of week 27 saw me down at Colpoy’s Bay for a disappointing sunrise. Once the sun was above the horizon I headed home the long way. The plan was to check the fields for birds and wildlife. The first field I checked had some mist in places over the vegetation.

The field used to be grazed by cattle but it’s been a couple of years since I last saw any in there. As a result the vegetation is quite high and the low sun was illuminating it nicely between the patches of mist.

Sunday morning of week 21 saw me down at Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise. I was accompanied by a few hundred mosquitoes, I had to clone out dozens of them from some of the photos as they hovered in front of the lens.

Some light mist over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment before the sun came up. Some nice ripples.

In the country, two barns.

This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge prompt is In The Country.

Having grown up in the country in Cheshire, England the first thing that sprang to mind was the old barns you see in the countryside in Canada. A lot of the old barns in England have been converted into accommodation for people.

These two barns are local to where I live now. Both are still in use, one for storage, the other is still being used for cattle. Both were taken around sunrise, my preferred time for photography.

Winter landscapes from the 1980s.

Some photos from Cheshire, England in the 1980s. As this part of Ontario is currently in a deep freeze and there’s a couple of feet of snow on the ground these photos make me think of warmer winters and much less snow.
