October Squares: Lines of Colour in the Sky

This is my contribution to day 29 of Becky’s October Squares: Lines photo challenge.

A section of a rainbow. Taken with a telephoto lens when I was sitting in a bird watching hide (blind) on a reservoir in south Cheshire, England.

Cosmic Photo Challenge

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Monochrome

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Monochrome.

Monochrome; noun, a picture executed in black and white or in varying tones of only one colour.

I was down at the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise on Sunday morning. I had taken my recently assembled lightweight camera kit.

It comprises of a small mirrorless camera body and three manual focus prime lenses, a wide angle, a standard and a telephoto. They all fit into a small camera bag, a Domke F-5XB. By far the smallest bag I’ve ever used or owned.

I put the telephoto lens on the camera and started isolating sections of the sky and water that were predominantly one colour.

Section of a Rainbow

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Rainbow Colors.

The Challenge specifies that the photo must have four colors. Having a selection to pick from I decided to take the challenge literally and use a photo of a rainbow.

This is a section of a rainbow taken with a long telephoto while I sat in a bird hide (blind) photographing a winter gull roost.
