Chantry Island Lighthouse at Sunset

Throwback Thursday travels back 13 years and 1 day this week. A digital capture so I know exactly when it was taken.

This is the lighthouse on Chantry Island just off the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada.

One Of A Kind #5

Having miscalculated my squares for October I had to find a square to end the month. So I thought a bird at sunset would be an appropriate ending.

A male Mallard in silhouette at sunset in the winter is my day 31 contribution to Becky’s October Squares challenge on the theme of Kind.

A big thanks to Becky for an interesting and varied October Squares. It was bigger challenge than usual for me without an internet connection at home.

A V at Sunset

Throwback Thursday travels back to Saskatchewan in the late 1990s.

A large, loose V of Sandhill Cranes flying to roost at sunset during the autumn migration.

With no internet connection at home I’m slowly working on editing the thousands of slides I copied last winter. I recently finished all the copies with Sandhill Crane included in the keywords.

Rum and Raisin at Sunset

Throwback Thursday is traveling back to the summer of 1985.

I spent part of that summer in Ontario shooting travel and nature for two British photo agencies. This is a sunset seen from the dock in Big Bay. Close to the dock there’s a general store that sold (and still sells as far as I know) homemade ice cream. I was eating rum and raisin ice cream while photographing the setting sun.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Sanctuary

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

On reading the prompt I didn’t have any ideas for some time. Then I thought about the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area in Saskatchewan, Canada.

The National Wildlife Area includes the Last Mountain Lake Bird Sanctuary, the first federal bird sanctuary in North America.

 

Tuesday Photo Challenge - Connect

The sanctuary is a breeding area for American White Pelicans.
