Monochrome Monday is only going back a couple of years.
As the image is almost timeless I decided to make it look like an old film image by adding a film type border and an uneven vignette.
The new Wits End Weekly Photo Challenge is Unexpected Beauty.
I had a few ideas for the challenge, at one point I was considering a portrait of a Horsefly that I had used for a different photo challenge earlier in the week.
In the end I went with a winter weather photo taken in early spring. A couple of weeks earlier there had been a covering of snow on the ice. After some thawing the snow had melted and the ice had started breaking up before it all froze over again.

A monochrome conversion of a sunrise from this time last year as I still have a minimum of three weeks left in rehab recovering from the fall I had in March. I’m hoping to be walking and getting out with a camera by the end of May.

The new Lens-Artists Photo Challenge is Creativity.
This gave me the opportunity do varying degrees of editing to a selection of shots.
First a photo of an Orange Day-Lily photographed on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada.
After that I did some work on a shot of the Lake Huron shoreline at sunrise with Chantry Island on the horizon. Taken from Dominion Lookout at the bottom of High Street, Southampton, Ontario, Canada.
Some moderate editing on a photo of a group of Coneflowers on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada.
Finally, a heavily edited sunrise over Colpoy’s Bay with the Niagara Escarpment on the horizon.
