April Squares: Doing It on Top of a Rock

This is my day 14 contribution to Becky’s April Squares: Top photo challenge.

I still don’t have an internet connection. I can use the cell phone as a WiFi hotspot early in the morning until the network gets busy so I am just posting anything I had prepared before Sunday evening.

A pair of Common Terns mating on a rock on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.

WWE #22: Waves and a Rock

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #22 Photo Challenge.

A wave breaking over a rock on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario early one morning. The result of going down to the shoreline with a telephoto lens and there being no birds to photograph.

Wave Versus Rock x 2

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Words that end in “ock”

I had a few ideas for this challenge and actually went out and took some shots I thought may work for one of the ideas. Then I changed my plans for the post completely.

Living on a limestone peninsula where the bedrock is exposed in lots of locations I thought about rock. There are boulders all around the area and I thought about some of them in the water along the Lake Huron shoreline.

A slow shutter speed allows the wave to blur as it hits the rock.

A fast shutter speed freezes the water in mid air as a wave breaks over a rock.

In reality these two Common Tern were about to mate but the male had to alight first.

A Photographer’s Pet?

This is my off the wall take on Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Pets, living to stuffed animals to pet rocks. I started thinking outside the box before flattening the box and putting it in the recycling.

It occurred to me that some photographer’s have a camera bag as a stuffed pet. It goes with them everywhere and sits waiting patiently in the snow while they take photos.
