April Squares: Bright Kayak

Bright Kayak

A fluorescent green kayak emerging from fog on Lake Huron at Southampton, Ontario. A visit to the Lake Huron shoreline had found the lake shrouded in fog when this splash of colour appeared.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Bright Squares Month and is my day 19 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

Two of a Kind: American Avocets

Two Of A Kind

Two summer plumage American Avocets feeding on a slough near Punnichy, Saskatchewan. Although the photo is as much about the ripples as the birds.

Plus I’ve always liked the two drops of water falling from the males bill. I say it’s a male because the bill is straighter than the bird in the background. The more curved bill means that the background bird is a female.

January Squares: Up #2

Opened Up all the way.

An ongoing experiment photographing flowers and plants with various unusual lenses. In this case a fast portrait lens gave me a nice soft but colourful background.

One Word Sunday: Art

A fallen Maple leaf on a weathered limestone boulder on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Not a selective colour treatment, the colour and tones are pretty much as they came out of the camera. I used Snapseed to add a vignette and lens blur around the edges of the frame to focus attention on the leaf.

This is my contribution to Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Art prompt.

Six Minutes at Sunrise

Getting Back to Basics: Cloud Over the Bay at Sunrise

A six minute live composite exposure of Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at sunrise recently.

The cloud was changing colour during the exposure which was an interesting experiment.

Taken with my getting back to basics Olympus kit and cropped to 3:2 during editing.
