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.

WWE #20: Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise

Sunday morning saw me down at the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise. Three days into spring and it was so cold that I got a second pair of gloves out of the car to go over the thin gloves I was using to operate the camera.

That’s ice forming on the rocks along the shoreline.

Ripples and Reflections

This is a contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere Photo Challenge #11.

I had been standing on the dock in Colpoy’s Bay photographing the sunrise when I turned around and saw the reflection of the tree being distorted by the ripples.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Stone

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Stone.

Currently living on the Bruce Peninsula, a limestone promontory separating Lake Huron from Georgian Bay there’s rather a lot of stone around here. The eastern side of the peninsula is formed by the Niagara Escarpment. The same escarpment that the Niagara River flows over at Niagara Falls.

Autumn colour on a section of the Niagara Escarpment. Some of the limestone face of the escarpment is visible through the trees with fallen boulders along the shoreline.
