Throwback Thursday travels back 12 years this week.
A couple of people fishing from the end of the dock at the mouth of the Saugeen River on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.
What’s interesting about this shot is that since it was taken the water level in Lake Huron has increased quite dramatically. The stony patch of shoreline in the foreground is now under water.
This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Tourism.
Despite living in a tourist destination and on a route for tourists heading to northern Ontario or western Canada I was drawing a blank on this challenge. Then I remembered these two photos of the range light at the mouth of the Saugeen River on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.
Around 12 years ago I was approached by a local tourism organisation about using this photo in one of their guides. As this shot was already being used as a postcard they decided not to use it and asked if I had anything similar.
A month or so earlier I had been down on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton testing my new Olympus E-410 and the plastic kit lenses it came with. This is the fourth shot taken with the camera and is the one used in the guide.
