One from the archives taken in Ontario, Canada on the Lake Huron shoreline at the bottom of High Street in Southampton. A film shot from the early 2000s.
Chantry Island and it’s lighthouse are on the horizon at the left side of the frame. There’s no EXIF data the original being on film but given the apparent angle of view I’d guess it was taken with my 17mm Tamron lens on an Olympus OM body.
Range light, Saugeen River mouth, Southampton.
Six Word Saturday.
One from the archives taken in the early 2000s when I was living a few blocks from the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.
Taken with a telephoto lens to make the lighthouse large in the frame. As I was down at the shoreline regularly I could time the camera exposure to the flash of the light in the lighthouse. If I recall correctly the light flashed every six seconds. So after it flashed I would count five seconds and then release the shutter before counting six.
One from the archives taken 11 years ago this week.
I had gone down to the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario for the sunset behind Chantry Island when a small V of Canada Geese flew over so I reframed to include them.
Saturday morning of week 42 saw me on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario. After several days of strong winds there was some serious waves hitting the shoreline.
They were breaking over rocks surrounding the flagpole at the bottom of High Street in Southampton, the spray hit me a couple of times. I was quite surprised how rough Lake Huron was, I had been down at Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise a few hours earlier and the bay was calmer than I expected given the wind.
In the photo you can see Chantry Island and it’s lighthouse on the horizon left of center.
