Cosmic Photo Challenge: What Dreams May Come

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: What Dreams May Come.

I started thinking about dreams and how reality is distorted in them. That got me thinking about distorting the world around us in photographs.

A recent sunrise over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment. Taken with a fisheye lens the horizontal field of view is approximately 130 degrees, much wider than the human eye can take in. Yes that is snow and ice on the distorted shoreline in the foreground.

An even more distorted image. Trees in winter distorted by the fisheye lens and by motion blur created by vertically panning the camera during exposure.

Now for an opposite approach, isolating sections of the landscape with a long telephoto. This is a combination of two photos of the same group of trees taken less than 24 hours apart. The trees were first photographed at sunrise while I was scouting for a location for the the full moon rising that evening. The moon rise is over laid on the sunrise.

CFFC: Green

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Green.

I discovered that I had rather a lot of green photos that would work for the challenge. So I decided to go with two very different photos featuring vastly different amounts of green.
