Natural Patterns on the Bay

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Patterns in Nature prompt.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before thinking of some of the ripples on Colpoy’s Bay I had photographed in the six months the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions were lifted a little.

Up Above the Bay

My Travel Tuesday blog post this week is also an extra January Squares for Becky’s theme of Up.

A visit to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise saw multiple aircraft contrails crossing the sky. So I put a telephoto zoom on the camera and started isolating interesting clouds while avoiding the contrails.

2020: Emotions

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge. This week Patti gave us the prompt Emotions.

After some thought I decided to look back at 2020. A very strange year that saw me not make it back to the U.K., hospitalised in the spring and then there was the Covid-19 pandemic.

Silent Sunday: 26th January 2020

Mid January and I had postponed plans to visit the U.K. due to the beginnings of the Covid-19 pandemic. I was going for walks around the neighborhood little realising that in a couple of months that would be all I would be allowed to do.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Old and New

By the end of May I was going a little stir crazy being stuck at home. I set up in the yard in the biggest gap in the trees and tried to photograph the clouds at sunset. When that didn’t work out I started playing around with the Live Composite setting on the Olympus camera I was using. Live Composite recorded the clouds streaking across the sky at dusk.

Silent Sunday: 26th July 2020

July saw some of the Covid-19 restrictions eased and I could visit one of my sunrise locations on Colpoy’s Bay. Things seemed to be settling down into the new normal.

Wordless Wednesday: 30th December 2020

The end of December and Ontario was putting some Covid-19 restrictions back in place and I was going for walks around the neighborhood again. Less than two weeks into 2021 and Ontario has declared a provincial emergency with a stay-at-home order in place.

2020: Mornings

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: Morning.

I decided to look back at some of the mornings I was out with a camera in 2020.

Down to the local bay at dawn before Ontario went into lockdown. Snow and ice on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise.

With some of the lockdown restrictions lifted I could go down to some sections of the local bay for the sunrise again. Storm clouds over Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise.
