Precious Minutes

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Precious Moments prompt.

As is sometimes the case with me, I had a couple of ideas for the challenge before turning 90 degrees and heading off sideways.

That was because I Googled moment to see if there was a defined range of times that fall under the word. I was surprise to discover that a moment started out as a medieval unit of time, approximately 90 seconds long.

Which got me thinking about some of the photos I have taken since the lockdown restrictions were lifted a little in the summer. Some of those photos involved exposure times minutes long which explains the title of this post.

One Word Sunday

Night

I had a couple of ideas for the One Word Sunday prompt Night.

Then I remembered my fruitless visits to the dock at Colpoy’s Bay looking for Comet Neowise in the summer and one long exposure photo showing star trails in particular. Apparently the planet was passing through three different meteor showers at the time which explains the shooting stars.

The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow prompt.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before considering the word tomorrow in the prompt. I decided to head down to the dock at Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise the day after the prompt was posted and see what I came up with.
