October Squares: Red Lines in the Sky

This is my contribution to day 31 of Becky’s October Squares: Lines photo challenge. The final day of the challenge so a sunset seemed appropriate.

A big thanks to Becky for another interesting and entertaining Squares challenge.

Lake Huron, Sand and Sunrise

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Sun, sea and sand.

Currently living in Ontario, Canada I’m a long way from the nearest salt water. But I am close to some of the sandy beaches of Lake Huron.

So here’s a sandy, fresh water beach at sunrise. The giant Canadian flag and flagpole at the bottom of High Street, Southampton, Ontario is visible above the horizon. A digital capture, I added a Polaroid type border to the image.

On Autumn Migration

Throwback Thursday travels back 14 years. I had gone down to the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario for the sunrise. I don’t remember what the sunrise was like but I did find a small group of juvenile Red Knot on the shoreline. Having hatched a few months previously they were heading south for the first time.

I spent some time with them, after a while they were comfortable enough to feed, bathe, preen and sleep in front of me.

This individual is feeding amongst the rocks on the shoreline.

Fishing off the Dock

Throwback Thursday travels back 12 years this week.

A couple of people fishing from the end of the dock at the mouth of the Saugeen River on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.

What’s interesting about this shot is that since it was taken the water level in Lake Huron has increased quite dramatically. The stony patch of shoreline in the foreground is now under water.
