A Photo a Week Challenge: Landscape

I had a few ideas for the A Photo a Week Challenge: Landscape prompt.

In the end I decided to keep it simple and go with a small, varied selection of photos.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Showcase Yourself

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Showcase Yourself.

Having been taking photos for over 40 years I had a few ideas for the challenge and changed my plans for the post several times. Eventually I decided to pick one image from each decade.

Storm clouds and light beams over Loch Arkaig, Scotland in 1985. After 3 days of rain it stopped for a while.

An Osprey with a White Sucker on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada in 2008. I went down to the shoreline for the sunrise and stayed for a while checking out what birds were around.

Rainbow over a barn on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada in 2017. The rain was too heavy to stop for a shot of the rainbow over some trees in their autumn colour. A quarter mile later the rain had eased off enough to stop.
