Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Treasure Hunt

Tina has challenged everyone to a Treasure Hunt for this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

It all got a little confusing for me due to various issues unconnected with this blog. In the end I copied and pasted the list of treasure hunt items to a memo as a reminder.

Just to make things even more complicated I also made myself some rules. A set of four photos with two horizontal compositions and two vertical compositions. Also as wide a variety of techniques and subject matter as possible.

A frozen marsh at sunset, Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan. This covers the sunset and the cold items of the treasure hunt. I’m assuming -40 degrees is cold enough.

A yellow bicycle in the snow. This covers bicycle and cold on the list of treasure hunt items. Actually, it’s the shadow of a tree on the shed that makes the shot for me.

January Squares: Oak Tree by Moonlight

This is my day 28 contribution to Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge.

One of the earliest photos I have used for the January Squares. It dates back to the mid 1970s and was part of a slide presentation that got me a place at art school.

It shows a full moon shining through a gap in the branches of an Oak tree in Hatherton, Cheshire, England.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Silhouettes.

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Silhouettes.

I had a couple of ideas for the challenge, the first was a selection of silhouettes spanning the decades followed by a selection of bird silhouettes.

In the end I went with a selection of silhouettes from the South Bruce Peninsula over the past few years.
