A Photo a Week Challenge: Changing Seasons

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Changing Seasons prompt.

There’s no real signs of spring around here yet but we had a mild winter with not a lot of snow so we may have an early spring. The possibility of an early spring is shown in these three photos of Colpoy’s Bay in the first week of spring over the last three years.

CFFC: Trees, Clouds and Early Mornings

This is my contribution to week 2 of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pick a Topic from this Photo.

For week 2 I picked three topics from Cee’s photo, trees, clouds and early mornings. Originally I was planning on going with a single location but quickly thought of other photos. So I limited myself to six photos from the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario taken over the past few years.

WWE #20: Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise

Sunday morning saw me down at the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise. Three days into spring and it was so cold that I got a second pair of gloves out of the car to go over the thin gloves I use to operate the camera.

That’s ice forming on the rocks along the shoreline.

 

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Reflections

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

I was considering my post early on Sunday morning when I was down at the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise photographing the colour reflected in the bay. The first two reflections that came to mind were both from Saskatchewan in the late 1990s so I decided to add a third photo from around the village of Punnichy.
