One from the archives taken in the early 2000s when I was living a few blocks from the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.
Taken with a telephoto lens to make the lighthouse large in the frame. As I was down at the shoreline regularly I could time the camera exposure to the flash of the light in the lighthouse. If I recall correctly the light flashed every six seconds. So after it flashed I would count five seconds and then release the shutter before counting six.

Throwback Thursday travels back to Saskatchewan, Canada in the late 1990s. This is a section of Last Mountain Lake at sunset. I was visiting the lake for the flocks of Snow Geese and Sandhill Cranes that gather in the area on autumn migration.
This was a favourite location for sunset, I tried to stop there if I was in the area. This evening the water was calm with the wildfowl and Sandhill Cranes all on another section of the lake.
This is a second response to this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge which is Shadows, Shapes and Silhouettes.
This is the lighthouse on Chantry Island just off the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada. Taken just as the sun drops behind the island.
This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is Wings Across The Skies.
There was some obvious choices for me. At the same time, a bit of a challenge because of the range of choices.
I picked this shot of Sandhill Cranes flying to roost at sunset because they cross the frame, from one side to the other. In other words, wings across the frame. The photo was taken at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan, Canada in the autumn. The Quill Lakes area is a staging area for Sandhill Cranes on their way south for the winter.
Having failed to get out for a sunrise in week 30 I took to some local back roads for the sunset mid week.
Despite some nice colour in the clouds to the west it was this old barn to the east that first caught my attention with the soft, evening light on it.
