Lighthouse at Dusk

Throwback Thursday travels back to the Lake Huron shoreline in the early 2000s.

This is Chantry Island and its lighthouse at dusk in early winter. Chantry Island is just off the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.

Now and Then

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Now and Then prompt.

It took me a while to come up with an idea for a post in response to the prompt and it doesn’t really show a difference between now and pre Covid-19 days.

I thought about some of the photos taken on my walks around the neighborhood since Ontario went into lockdown in the spring. Particularly the photos of plants and flowers taken with various unusual lenses.

That’s when I realised that I have been using unusual lenses or techniques for an awfully long time.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Negative Space

Portrait of a Coneflower growing on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. Taken with a fast portrait lens a few months ago and a favourite from the summer.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: One Single Flower

Portrait of a Prairie Lily taken in Saskatchewan, Canada in the late 1990s. I used a long telephoto lens to isolate the flower from the rest of the vegetation growing in the ditch.

Weekly Prompts: Aesthetically Appealing

Portrait of a Fuchsia flower using high speed film and a soft focus filter. Taken in the mid 1980s when I was trying to get calender and greeting card publishers interested in these types of images.

Female Common Merganser with young

This week Throwback Thursday is traveling back 13 years to August 2007.

This is a female Common Merganser with young on Lake Huron near the Long Dock in Southampton, Ontario, Canada. This was a very late brood, the young wouldn’t have long to grow and prepare to head south for the winter.

Eye Level with a female Wilson’s Phalarope

This is my day 24 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and another of my eye level perspective series.

This is a female Wilson’s Phalarope feeding on a section of the Middle Quill Lake shoreline in Saskatchewan, Canada. To get down to eye level with the bird I was lying in sand mixed with duck and goose poop.
