Pastel Colours at Dawn

Travel Tuesday is traveling back three years to December 2017.

This is Colpoy’s Bay looking south towards the town of Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula.

The row of old wood piles sticking out of the water are now mostly underwater as the water level in the bay has risen considerably in the three years since this photo was taken.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Delicate Colours

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Delicate Colours.

This week’s prompt came from Ann-Christine and was giving me some difficulty. I had a couple of ideas for the challenge, neither of which I was really happy with. Then I realised that the two photos I was thinking of were taken over 40 years apart, one in the 1970s and one in the 2010s.

So I decided to fill in the blank decades with a photo from each decade.

Cosmic Photo Challenge

Soft and pastel

This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is “The Look of Love” which made me think of roses, chocolates and this photo. Taken in the mid 1980s using a soft focus filter on the lens and a little known film, Scotch Chrome 1000.
