Favourite Trees Of 2021

This is my contribution to Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Your best bits prompt.

I quickly decided to go with one photo from each season. Then, when I started short listing photos I noticed that there was a preponderance of images of trees.

So four of my favourite tree images from 2021.

CMMC: Contains two A

Winter. Intentional camera movement of trees in snow. An on going project, I decided to limit myself to just one ICM image for this post.

Six Word Saturday: A Group of Trees at Sunrise

Spring. A group of trees illuminated by the rising sun. Isolated with a long telephoto as I was photographing birds at the time.

Lens-Artists: Back Country Roads

Summer. An exploding tree? Light beams behind a tree shortly after sunrise courtesy of a mix of mist and smoke. The smoke was from wildfires burning in western Canada.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: A Cold Start

Autumn. Trees in snow on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise. Taken after the heaviest snowfall of the autumn. The snow has since thawed after a mild spell.

A two minute live composite exposure of a mist shrouded Colpoy’s Bay at dawn recently.

Shortly after the photo was taken the mist turned into heavy drizzle and I draped my gloves over the camera and lens to keep as much of the water off them as possible.

Mist Over the Bay at Dawn

Getting Back to Basics: Mist Over the Bay at Dawn

Mist over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment at dawn recently. I rather like the way the lights on the opposite shoreline are illuminating the patches of mist while reflecting on the water.

The foreground lighting was provided by a streetlight, no need for light painting on this occasion. I was using a 2 second delay on the shutter release to allow me to get my shadow out of the shot.

An outing with my Getting Back to Basics Sony kit taken with the TTArtisan 17mm lens. This is my contribution to Jez’s Water Water Everywhere #99 photo challenge.

Photographed from the Government Dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario shortly after sunrise in summer.

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.

The South Bank of the River Thames with a mist shrouded Houses of Parliament across the river in the background on a damp Sunday morning.

Golden Light on the Escarpment

Travel Tuesday: 21st September 2021

Golden light on a section of the Niagara Escarpment shortly after sunrise last Sunday.

The reflection of the boats moored at Wiarton Marina is being softened by some light mist coming of the water.
