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 some weak northern lights just above the horizon and a shooting star. Photographed a couple of weeks ago when I was looking for the Neowise comet.

Wide Angle Perspective 3

This is my day 27 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and another of my wide angle perspective series.

Looking up at a giant red butterfly garden ornament with a wide angle lens. I like the contrast between the red butterfly and blue sky.

Wide Angle Perspective 2

This is my day 23 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and the second in my wide angle perspective series.

Bare trees against a blue sky on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada. Although it was the wispy clouds as much as the blue sky that attracted me to the scene.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: The World in Lockdown

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: The World in Lockdown.

The first thing that came to mind was a small selection of photos from my various walks around the neighborhood during the lockdown in Ontario.

 

Cosmic Photo Challenge: From an Unusual Angle

Late March and the sky is already noticeably bluer with so little air traffic.

Weekly Prompts: Awareness

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts: Awareness challenge.

I thought of a few types of awareness, animals are generally much more aware of their surroundings and potential threats than most humans.

 

Weekly Prompts: Awareness

This Red-breasted Nuthatch is checking the sky, aware of the  possibility of predators overhead.

 

On the other hand, the Covid-19 pandemic that has forced many people to stay at home has probably made some people more aware of their surroundings. I quickly became aware of how much bluer the sky in this part of Ontario was with so few aircraft flying.

 

Weekly Prompts: Awareness

I’m aware of how bright the neighborhood Paper Birch trees look against the deep blue sky.
