On the Hunt for Joy: Sit in the Sunshine

This is my contribution to Cee’s On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Sit in the Sunshine.

One photo came to mind almost instantly when I read the prompt for week 4 of the challenge. After that it was simply a case of finding a couple more photos to go with it.

A Dunnock sitting in the sun in Hatherton, Cheshire, England. Its feathers are fluffed up because it’s sunbathing which is why it came to mind so quickly.

A Thirteen-lined Ground Squirrel sits in the sun having just emerged from its burrow in the spring. Punnichy, Saskatchewan, Canada.

January Squares: Giant Orange Light

This is my day 27 contribution to Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge.

The setting sun taken with a long forgotten mix of telephoto lens and teleconverters. The tiny specks below the sun are very distant wildfowl flying to roost. Taken at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada in the autumn.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Cosmically Circular/Cosmically Square!

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Cosmically Circular/Cosmically Square!

I considered this challenge for some time before deciding that my interpretation was going to be round things in the sky, cropped square. Simple.

A moon. Not the moon because we now know that there are other moons out there. Some with more dramatic names, Titan or Deimos, for example. Taken from the dock at Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario while waiting for the sun to rise.

A manmade circle in the sky. Wiarton Village Fair fireworks on the South Bruce Peninsula. Taken with a telephoto from a couple of miles away across the bay from the dock at Colpoy’s Bay. The same location as the moon photo.
