Bracket Fungi on a Tree Trunk

Spotted on a recent walk around the neighborhood. The side lighting and monochromatic colour caught my eye.

Monochromatic Ripples

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Water prompt and also my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #54 Photo Challenge.

One from my slide archives I discovered while looking for abstract photos. It may not look like it’s a colour original but this is a Kodachrome slide that hasn’t been converted to monochrome.

The ripples were photographed on the River Weaver in southern Cheshire, England in the mid 1980s. The more I look at the photo the more the ripples remind me of old fashioned cobblestones.

Racing Across the Sky

A recent visit to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise. After overnight thunderstorms the wind was strong with storm clouds racing across the sky.

This 15 second exposure at dawn has recorded lots of movement in the clouds.

Fog on the Niagara Escarpment

A shot from last weekend that I almost overlooked. I was down at Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise. There was some mist over the water but I noticed that there was thicker fog on the Niagara Escarpment across the bay. Despite being taken around sunrise it’s an almost monochromatic shot. This is as it came out of the camera.

The Niagara Escarpment is very long, it loops through Ontario, Canada after starting and ending in the U.S. A lot of people will be familiar with it where the Niagara River flows over it at Niagara Falls but it also forms the spine of the Bruce Peninsula. I was standing at the base of it when I took the photo as it circles Colpoy’s Bay.
