Storm Clouds at Sunrise

Travel Tuesday: Storm Clouds at Sunrise

Travel Tuesday is traveling to Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at sunrise last Sunday.

Storm clouds over the mouth of Colpoy’s Bay, White Cloud Island and the Niagara Escarpment. There had been thunder rumbling in the distance a few minutes before the photo was taken.

Postcards From Colpoy’s Bay

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

Having started selecting photos from different locations I changed my plan. I decided to concentrate on one location, Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

A small selection of photos from the past year. All taken with small, manual focus prime lenses in what I call my back to basics kit.

Tree Swallow

Flora and Fauna Friday: Tree Swallow

My Flora and Fauna Friday post this week is the Tree Swallow (Tachycineta bicolor), a member of the swallows and martins family found in the Americas.

This individual was photographed at Isaac Lake on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario last spring. The species traditionally nests in tree cavities but will use nestboxes. There are several areas at Isaac Lake with groups of nestboxes for them.

This is also a contribution to Becky’s July Squares: Trees photo challenge.

Old wooden piles sticking out of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at sunrise last Saturday.

With thick, solid cloud over the bay I was shooting minimalist images with the intention of doing monochrome conversions. Taken with the TTArtisan 35mm lens. Owning a large selection of 35mm lenses the TTArtisan is quickly becoming a favourite walk around lens.

I was also experimenting with the recently released TTArtisan 17mm lens, a lens I have quickly grown to like.
