Famous

This is one of the more famous tourist attractions on the Bruce Peninsula, Ontario. This is one of the Flowerpots on Flowerpot Island. Flowerpot Island in in Georgian Bay and is part of the Fathom Five National Marine Park.

The Flowerpots are a type of sea stack formed over many years as the softer rock erodes leaving the harder pillar of rock standing.

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Cover.

Having had my first cover shot published in the early 1980s I still try to shoot vertical and horizontal versions of a photo at times. Editors are often looking for vertical images for use on covers.

A sunrise over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment from late summer. This is a horizontal version I used in a blog post when it was taken.

A vertical version from that morning.

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Big and Small

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Big and Small.

I decided to go with two photos, one of a big subject and one of a small subject.

I thought about some of the bird species that have headed south for the winter and that we won’t be seeing again until next spring. Two of those species are Sandhill Cranes and Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. You can’t get a much bigger difference in size.

Two Sandhill Cranes feeding in a local hay field. Taken on my way home after going down to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise.

An hour or so later on the same day I was set up in the yard photographing the Ruby-throated Hummingbirds that arrive for the summer. As this bird lacks the patch of iridescent ruby red feathers on the throat it’s either a female or an immature bird.
