Motion and Movement

This is my contribution to Ann-Christine’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Weird and Wonderful prompt.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before realising that two of them involved motion blur and intentional camera movement.

So I decided to go with a small selection of motion blur and intentional camera movement shots.

One Word Sunday: Count

Intentional camera movement of trees on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Moving Storm Clouds

This is my contribution to Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge: September Alphabet must have an O anywhere in the middle of the word prompt.

Two live composite exposures of storm clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay recently. Both from the same morning in between the showers. The first taken at dawn, the second at sunrise.

34 Minutes Before Sunrise

2021: 62 Seconds 34 Minutes Before Sunrise

Clouds moving across Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at dawn this morning.

For a change this summer they weren’t storm clouds. I wasn’t expecting this much cloud as the local weather station was reporting mainly clear skies when I got up for the sunrise.

A 62 second exposure achieved by me standing behind the camera holding the shutter release down, because I’ve misplaced the remote release for the camera.

Summer Storms

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Weather prompt.

Having had quite a few storms this summer I decided to go with a small selection of storm clouds over Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at dawn and sunrise. At least two of the photos were taken during thunderstorms.

I added some “film grain” when doing the monochrome conversion as it seemed appropriate for the subject.

Looking Up/Down

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Looking Up/Down prompt.

I decided to go with a small selection of photos from the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario taken this year as I’ve been trying to avoid my archives as much as possible recently.

Cloud Streaming Over the Bay

2021: Dawn Clouds

A three minute live composite exposure of cloud streaming across Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at dawn last Saturday.

My first outing with the new TTArtisan 7.5mm fisheye lens. I kept the horizon running through the the center of the frame to keep the fisheye distortion to a minimum.
