The Cold Light of Dawn

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: The cold light of day prompt.

Being a morning person and as dawn and sunrise is frequently the coldest part of the day I decided to go with a small selection of photos taken at dawn in winter and featuring ice or snow.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Reflections

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

I was considering my post early on Sunday morning when I was down at the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise photographing the colour reflected in the bay. The first two reflections that came to mind were both from Saskatchewan in the late 1990s so I decided to add a third photo from around the village of Punnichy.

Two Roads in Monochrome

ThIs is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Roads.

I decided to go with a post of contrasts, an impassable road in summer and a passable with care road in a winter snow storm.

Throwback Thursday

Frozen Slough at Sunrise

Throwback Thursday travels back to Saskatchewan in the late 1990s.

It was the pattern of snow on the ice of the frozen slough that caught my eye and the way it was reflecting the clouds in the frozen surface. I didn’t notice the weak sun pillar until I was editing a scan of the shot years later.
