Week 28. Green on grey.

A florescent green kayak appears out of the fog on Lake Huron.

Saturday morning of week 28 saw me down at the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario. The lake was shrouded in fog, I heard and just managed to spot two Common Terns over the water when I spotted the kayak.

This is a colour photo, not manipulated. I was considering it for Monochrome Monday but decided that was cheating so it’s my pick for week 28. A few minutes later the fog had rolled in and the kayak was barely visible.

A splash of green.

Taken close to the flagpole at the bottom of High Street, Southampton, Ontario in the early 2000s. The water level has risen since the photo was taken and this stony spit is now under water.

It’s Throwback Thursday and this week is a follow-up of sorts to last week.

Last week I posted one of the last images I shot on film. This week I’m posting an early digital image taken soon after the film image from last week.

I had been shooting film along side digital for about a while but went totally digital 11 years ago this month. The photo below is the eleventh shot taken with the Olympus E-410 I had just purchased.

After posting the photo on a photo forum I was approached by a camera magazine who wanted to use it. When I asked about their usage rates I was informed that they don’t pay for photos. Hard to comprehend that a magazine aimed at photographers expected them to give their work away. Needless to say, they didn’t get to use the photo.

So to the photo. It shows the Range Light at the mouth of the Saugeen River on the Lake Huron shoreline at Southampton, Ontario about 15 minutes before sunrise.

More Canada Day fireworks.

As this is the first Throwback Thursday after Canada Day I thought this selection was rather appropriate.

Not as old a photo as some of my Throwback Thursday posts but there is a reason why I picked this shot. Taken 11 years ago, it was one of the last images I shot on film. I suspect it was on the last roll of film I exposed.

Taken on the Lake Huron shoreline, it’s the Canada Day firework display in Southampton, Ontario. I set up some distance down the lakeshore and photographed the fireworks with a long telephoto lens. The photo also show the Range Light at the mouth of the Saugeen River. The spit on the shoreline that the fireworks are being set off from in now under water as the level has risen since the photo was taken.
