Cosmic Photo Challenge

Snow Art

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Art for art’s sake prompt.

I thought about some of the abstract images I had made in the winter. As a result I decided to make the post about some of the photos featuring snow

A Change of Scenery

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: A Change of Scenery prompt.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge but in the end decided to keep it simple and stay local. I decided to look back to last summer and autumn when some of the Covid-19 restrictions started being lifted and I could visit one of my sunrise locations again.

Wordless Wednesday: 8th July 2020

One of my first visits to Colpoy’s Bay for a sunrise after the restrictions were eased.

Travel Tuesday: Colpoy's Bay at night

In July Comet Neowise was in the news. I made several attempts to see and photograph it. On one occasion I set up the camera to record star trails over Colpoy’s Bay while I looked for the comet.

A Photo a Week: Joy

Once the restrictions were eased a little and I could visit the bay I spent quite a bit of time photographing ripples on the water at sunrise. On this occasion a Common Loon swam into the section of ripples I was photographing and created a second set of ripples.

2020: Red Streak

The autumn saw lots of storm clouds over the bay but I still went for the sunrise.
