Cosmic Photo Challenge: Cosmically Circular/Cosmically Square!

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.

Three quarters of the moon.

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.
