A Burst of Colour

WWE: A Burst of Colour

Storm clouds over Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario shortly before sunrise last Sunday.

I wasn’t expecting much colour and went down to the bay with the intention of making images suitable for monochrome conversion. The colour didn’t last long but it was bright.

This is my contribution to Jez’s Water Water Everywhere #100 photo challenge.

Storm clouds over Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario shortly after sunrise.

After a surprisingly brief but bright burst of colour shortly before sunrise the colour faded when the sun disappeared behind the storm clouds.

Two of a Kind: American Avocets

Two Of A Kind

Two summer plumage American Avocets feeding on a slough near Punnichy, Saskatchewan. Although the photo is as much about the ripples as the birds.

Plus I’ve always liked the two drops of water falling from the males bill. I say it’s a male because the bill is straighter than the bird in the background. The more curved bill means that the background bird is a female.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.
