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.

April Squares: Looking up at the Autumn Tops

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

Looking up at the autumn leaves on the South Bruce Peninsula. Taken with a fisheye lens although that’s not obvious because there’s very little of the distortion visible with the lens pointing almost straight up.

WWE #21: An Extreme View

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #21 photo challenge.

This is Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula at sunrise. It is formed by a large loop in the Niagara Escarpment which runs up the eastern side of the Bruce Peninsula.

The reason I say it’s an extreme view is because it was taken with a fisheye lens although that’s not obvious because I kept the horizon running across the center of the frame. This avoids the curvature very often associated with fisheye lenses.

The horizontal angle of view through the center of the frame is 130 degrees, more than the human eye can comfortably take in without turning the head. This is shown by the mouth of bay being visible on the left side of the frame which is to the north east. On the right side of the frame is the remains of a row of wood piles sticking out of the water which are to the south east from where the photo was taken.
