CBWC Month of Squares

Straight Up

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Vanishing Point prompt.

It’s also a contribution to Becky’s January Squares on the theme of Up.

Looking up at some bare trees on the South Bruce Peninsula in winter. Taken on a recent walk around the neighborhood with a fisheye lens on the camera.

Fisheye Sunrise

A recent sunrise over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment taken on the Government Dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay.

There was such a spread of cloud and colour I reached for my fisheye lens to get as wide a view of the clouds and reflections as possible.

Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 19th October 2020

A visit to the dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula on a grey, overcast morning saw me shooting long exposures in monochrome.

This is an extremely wide view of the dock and Colpoy’s Bay taken with a fisheye lens. It was a 30 second exposure which has smoothed out the water.

Not How It Appears In Reality

A visit to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise last Sunday morning and another photo taken with my fisheye lens.

I parked at the side of the road along the shoreline where the breakwater for Wiarton Marina sticks out into the bay. The breakwater is roughly 90 degrees from the shoreline but the distortion caused by extreme angle of view of the fisheye lens makes it look as if the shoreline and breakwater form a U rather than an L.

Dock at Dawn

The dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay on Colpoy’s Bay at dawn last Saturday.

Another shot taken with my fisheye lens to show the dock and as much of the bay as possible.

Fisheye Dawn

Still no internet connection so a quick post of a recent photo.

This is Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment at dawn last Sunday morning. I used a fisheye lens to include as much of the bay as possible and the dock I was standing on.

I kept the horizon in the center of the frame to reduce the fisheye distortion as much as possible. The edge of the dock is slightly curved by the lens.
