Lighthouse at sunset.

One from the archives taken in the early 2000s when I was living a few blocks from the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.

Taken with a telephoto lens to make the lighthouse large in the frame. As I was down at the shoreline regularly I could time the camera exposure to the flash of the light in the lighthouse. If I recall correctly the light flashed every six seconds. So after it flashed I would count five seconds and then release the shutter before counting six.

This is a second response to this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge which is Shadows, Shapes and Silhouettes.

This is the lighthouse on Chantry Island just off the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada. Taken just as the sun drops behind the island.

Week 26. Canada Day fireworks.

This pick for week 26 scraped in with an hour and 50 minutes to spare. Sunday was Canada Day so in the evening I went down to the dock at Colpoy’s Bay for the Wiarton firework display.

The display was set up on the public dock in Wiarton, a couple of miles away across the bay.
