Lighthouse at sunset.

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.

Week 42. Breaking wave.

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.

Sanderling on autumn migration.

Throwback Thursday travels back to the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario in the mid 2000s.

I had gone down to the shoreline for the sunrise and discovered a small flock of juvenile Sanderling that had stopped off to feed on their way south for the winter.

I spent some time with them, this is one of them feeding on the shoreline.
