Past Squares #31

January Squares: Last-Light

January Squares: Last-light

The sun sets over a frozen and partially snow covered Lake Huron in winter. Photographed at Southampton, Ontario. Chantry Island and its lighthouse are on the horizon.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was my last post in Words containing Light Squares Month and is my day 31 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

A big thank you to Becky for another fun month of squares.

October Squares: Past Squares

Lines of Ice at Sunset

Photographed during the spring thaw on Lake Huron at Southampton, Ontario, Canada. I thought the ice formations were unusual so took lots of photos as the sun was setting and as dusk settled in.

October Squares: Past Squares

Lines of Snow Geese at Sunset

The birds are flying to roost at dusk during autumn migration. Photographed at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, a staging area for wildfowl on autumn migration. A little known wildlife spectacle.

Trees on the Shoreline

A section of the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area, Saskatchewan, Canada at sunset in late autumn.

One of my favourites from Tree Squares month but clearly not many people liked it as it was largely ignored and didn’t get a single comment.

Sandhill Cranes on Autumn Migration

Flora and Fauna Friday: Sandhill Crane

Another unusual Flora and Fauna Friday post this week. A line of Sandhill Cranes (Antigone canadensis) flying to roost at sunset.

Photographed at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada in the late 1990s. At the time the Quill Lakes region was a major staging area for Snow Geese and Sandhill Cranes on autumn migration.

Apparently the water levels in the lakes is up massively since I was last there. I don’t know how that has affected the birds on autumn migration.
