Cosmic Photo Challenge: The End of Summer.

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: The End of Summer.

I decided to go with a small selection of photos from the weekend as we’re nearly at the end of the summer.

Storm clouds over Wiarton Marina and Colpoy’s Bay on Saturday morning. It won’t be long before all the boats are being pulled out of the water.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Something New.

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Something New.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before thinking of this photo taken when I was out with a camera testing my new 7artisans 55mm lens.

I have no idea what the name of this bush is but I’ve been photographing various aspects of it since last winter. The flowers are a new feature.

The remains of seed pods from last year and this year’s new leaves. Photographed earlier this summer with a 25mm CCTV lens adapted to fit a mirrorless camera.

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.
