Past Squares #24

January Squares: Up #12

January Squares: Up #12

Star trails over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. I had gone down to the bay looking for Comet Neowise and set up the camera to record the star trails.

With looking for the comet I didn’t realise that the camera had recorded over a dozen meteors. I later learned that Earth was passing through three meteor showers at the time. The light along the shoreline are a vehicle on Mallory Beach Road.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Up Squares Month and is my day 24 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

Bright Night

This is my day 10 contribution to Becky’s April Squares on the theme of Bright.

I couldn’t resist the combination of bright and night.

Star trails over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment with the lights of a vehicle driving along the shoreline road.

January Squares: Up #12

Looking Up at the stars.

This is my contribution to day 12 of Becky’s January Squares on the theme of Up.

Looking Up as the camera records the stars circling overhead. Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

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.

Star

Actually, lots of stars, a shooting star and a planet. This is my contribution to the One Word Sunday prompt Star.

What looks like the brightest star is really the planet Venus over Colpoy’s Bay a couple of hours before sunrise. There’s also a shooting star.

Photographed a couple of weeks ago when I was looking for Comet Neowise.

Colpoy’s Bay at night

Travel Tuesday is only traveling back to very early last Saturday morning when I traveled to the dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay in another attempt to photograph the comet Neowise.

These star trails over Colpoy’s Bay are a 25 minute exposure in total. I was using the live composite setting on an Olympus camera so the initial exposure was 1 second with a further 1,499 1 second exposures added to the initial exposure.

Earth has started passing through the Perseids meteor shower which explains all the shooting stars the camera recorded. The light along the bottom left of the frame is a vehicle driving down the shoreline road. The breaks in the light are when the vehicle is behind trees.
