CFFC: Vanishing Point or Leading Lines

A contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Vanishing Point or Leading Lines.

My first thought was of roads disappearing off in the distance.

Having spent part of the winter making digital copies of my slide archives I had found several photos of roads suitable for the challenge so I decided to go with my initial thought.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Landscape

I had a few ideas for the A Photo a Week Challenge: Landscape prompt.

In the end I decided to keep it simple and go with a small, varied selection of photos.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Clouds

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Clouds.

I decided to limit myself to four photos but needed a theme to make the selection easier. Then it occurred to me that we are only a few days from 2020 so how about one photo from each of the last four decades.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Showcase Yourself

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Showcase Yourself.

Having been taking photos for over 40 years I had a few ideas for the challenge and changed my plans for the post several times. Eventually I decided to pick one image from each decade.

Storm clouds and light beams over Loch Arkaig, Scotland in 1985. After 3 days of rain it stopped for a while.

Male and female American Avocets on a slough near Punnichy, Saskatchewan, Canada in 1995. I spent an hour with the birds, the only sighting of the species I have had.

An Osprey with a White Sucker on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada in 2008. I went down to the shoreline for the sunrise and stayed for a while checking out what birds were around.

Rainbow over a barn on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada in 2017. The rain was too heavy to stop for a shot of the rainbow over some trees in their autumn colour. A quarter mile later the rain had eased off enough to stop.

Weekly Prompts: Sepia Crofters Cottage

Another contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Sepia which is running throughout August.

This old crofters cottage was a museum of crofting when I was on the Isle of Skye in 1980. It’s another of those shots that would probably have been sepia toned if taken when the cottage was occupied.
