Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Monochrome

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Monochrome.

I hadn’t come up with an idea for this challenge when I headed down to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise on Sunday morning. With some interesting clouds over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment I was hoping for some colour at sunrise. No colour ever developed so I started thinking about some monochrome conversions for the challenge.

I had taken my lightweight kit of a small mirrorless camera and three manual focus prime lenses. So I tried to make a set of three images, one with each lens.

Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Cover

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.

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.

Ripples in the Water and the Sky

Monochrome Monday travels back a couple of weeks to a sunrise over Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment.

Not a very colourful sunrise but with some interesting clouds. What wasn’t as obvious in the colour versions was the rippled clouds higher in the sky. I rather like the way they almost mimic the ripples on the water.
