Postcards From Colpoy’s Bay

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

Having started selecting photos from different locations I changed my plan. I decided to concentrate on one location, Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

A small selection of photos from the past year. All taken with small, manual focus prime lenses in what I call my back to basics kit.
