This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Cosmically Circular/Cosmically Square!
I considered this challenge for some time before deciding that my interpretation was going to be round things in the sky, cropped square. Simple.
A moon. Not the moon because we now know that there are other moons out there. Some with more dramatic names, Titan or Deimos, for example. Taken from the dock at Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario while waiting for the sun to rise.
A manmade circle in the sky. Wiarton Village Fair fireworks on the South Bruce Peninsula. Taken with a telephoto from a couple of miles away across the bay from the dock at Colpoy’s Bay. The same location as the moon photo.
A giant setting sun behind cloud. Taken with a telephoto lens at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan during autumn migration. The specks in the photo are distant wildfowl flying to roost.

A full moon hangs over Chantry Island, its lighthouse and Lake Huron at sunrise. Southampton, Ontario, Canada.
Monochrome Monday is going back a few years with a visit to the dock at Colpoy’s Bay, Ontario for a sunrise.
A recent Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge where I posted a section of a rainbow got me thinking about some of other photos taken with a long telephoto while waiting for the light or for wildlife to cooperate.
I don’t remember why I ended up photographing the moon unless I got to Colpoy’s Bay so early I was waiting for the sunrise.
A shot from the archives, one of my early digital captures. Lake Huron with Chantry Island on the horizon from the shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.
A nearly full moon sits high in the sky with an interesting cloud illuminated by the rising sun lower in the sky.
Another version of the old barn taken earlier in the morning than the version I used for week 23.
I tried various compositions keeping the crescent moon in the frame. I think this is the version that works for me.
Being earlier in the morning the mosquitoes hadn’t come out in force at this point.
