Ripples, not a Comet

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #38 Photo Challenge.

Last Saturday I got up in the middle of the night and went down to the local bay to look for the comet Neowise. There was far too much cloud to see the comet but I stayed down there for the sunrise. Then I photographed the ripples around the end of the dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay.

WWE #24: Ripples and Reflections

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere Photo Challenge #24.

This is a photo about the ripples and reflections on the water, the immature Double-crested Cormorant is just there to provide a sense of scale. Photographed on the Saugeen River, Bruce County, Ontario.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Morning

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

I am a morning person and often have the alarm set to allow me to get to a location half an hour before sunrise. So here’s a small selection of photos taken around sunrise but not necessarily what I would call a photo of a sunrise.

Waves and rocks on the Lake Huron shoreline soon after sunrise.
