At the End of the Day

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: At the end of the day prompt.

I quickly ended up with a shortlist of dozens of photos. So I decided to go with the most recent and a small selection of favourites from previous decades.

Wide Open Spaces

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: In the big wide open spaces prompt.

I was considering a couple of approaches to the prompt before realising that there was one obvious choice, Saskatchewan, Canada.

As the evenings start to lengthen

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: As the evenings start to lengthen prompt.

I quickly decided to go back to pre Covid-19 times when I could get out and about more. Then I remembered the spring of 2008. The last spring I was living in Southampton, Ontario and a year when there was some interesting snow and ice formations on Lake Huron.

Throwback Thursday: 4th March 2021

Late winter and this section of Lake Huron is frozen and partly snow covered. Chantry Island and its lighthouse is on the horizon.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Dusk

A week into spring and there’s some interesting ice formations and patches of open water on Lake Huron at dusk.

Two weeks into spring and the only ice left is small pieces in the shallows along the shoreline. Chantry Island on the horizon at sunset.

Ice Formations at Sunset

My Throwback Thursday post this week continues my look back at the spring thaw on Lake Huron at Southampton, Ontario in 2008.

These ice formations were just off the shoreline as the setting sun illuminated them.

Lighthouse at Sunset

My Throwback Thursday post this week is going back to March 2008.

This is Chantry Island and its lighthouse at sunset. The lighthouse is one of the six Imperial Towers built on Lake Huron and Georgian Bay. Lake Huron is mostly snow free but refrozen after a partial thaw.
