A New Lens

This is my contribution to Nancy’s A Photo a Week Challenge: Something New prompt.

This is my latest unusual lens. A tiny 25mm CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless camera. I purchased it to replace one that the focusing mechanism keeps jamming on.

Photographed using a cheap 35mm CCTV lens adapted to a mirrorless camera. I used my new LED studio lights with a red filter on one of the lights.

Motion

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Motion prompt.

I quickly had a rather long “shortlist” of around a dozen images but wanted to go with four. That four changed twice before I decided enough was enough and stopped swapping photos.

Cracked Ice Along the Shoreline

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Cracked prompt.

My first thought was cracked ice, probably because of the recent weather in this part of Ontario.

Cracked ice along the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise a couple of winters ago.

Joy?

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Joy prompt.

I was photographing ripples on Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise when this Common Loon swam into the section with the most interesting ripples. I wasn’t overjoyed until the bird surfaced and did a nice wing stretch after a dive.

I don’t know if the stretch was to help the bird swallow a fish it had caught while underwater or if it’s simply straightening ruffled feathers but it certainly looks joyful.
