Belt of Venus around Lake Huron

Throwback Thursday travels back 13 years to September 2007.

This is Lake Huron with Chantry Island on the horizon shortly before sunrise. The band of colour just above the horizon is known as the Belt of Venus. It is an atmospheric phenomenon sometimes visible shortly before sunrise or shortly after sunset.

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.

Female Common Merganser with young

This week Throwback Thursday is traveling back 13 years to August 2007.

This is a female Common Merganser with young on Lake Huron near the Long Dock in Southampton, Ontario, Canada. This was a very late brood, the young wouldn’t have long to grow and prepare to head south for the winter.
