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.

This was a post in Up Squares Month and is my day 13 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

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.

Reflected in the Bay

WWE: Reflected in the Bay

The Niagara Escarpment and Wiarton Marina reflected in Colpoy’s Bay shortly after sunrise last Sunday.

There’s some very light mist coming off the water which I think adds to the calm mood of the image.

Walks On the South Bruce Peninsula

This week Amy has given us the theme Keep Walking for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

I thought the theme was ideal for a look back at some of the photos from my walks around parts of the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario this year.

2021: Orange Daylilies

Two Orange Daylilies in front of a large limestone boulder. I used a fast portrait lens to isolate the flowers and the limestone boulder to provide some negative space.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: In the Trees

I parked the car and walked along a back road when I saw the rising sun shining through mist over scrubland.

Lens-Artists: You Pick It!

One of my experiments with intentional camera movement on a walk around the neighborhood last spring.

2021: Displaying at Sunrise

A male Red-winged Blackbird displaying shortly after sunrise. Another walk along a back road on my way home from the sunrise at the local bay.
