Weekly Photo Challenge

WWE #22: Waves and a Rock

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #22 Photo Challenge.

A wave breaking over a rock on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario early one morning. The result of going down to the shoreline with a telephoto lens and there being no birds to photograph.

One Word Sunday


On reading the prompt for One Word Sunday: Knot it was ìnevitable that I would go with a photo or two of Red Knot I photographed on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton early one autumn morning.


One Word Sunday: Knot

One of the juvenile Red Knot in golden light on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario. I had gone down to the shoreline for the sunrise but spent the time photographing the Red Knot instead.


Cee's Fun Foto Challenge: Letter K

After feeding, bathing and preening while I took photos this one settled down for a nap. At which point I headed home to get some breakfast.

Monthly Squares

January Squares: Pillar of Sunlight

Technically it’s correctly known as a sun pillar but pillar of sunlight was to good an opportunity to miss for day 21 of Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge.

Sun pillars form when there are suitably aligned ice crystals suspended in the air at sunrise or sunset. This rather large sun pillar formed behind Chantry Island on Lake Huron, Ontario shortly after sunset. I had been photographing the interesting layers of  cloud with a telephoto lens when the sun pillar formed so was ready for it.
