On the Hunt for Joy: Get Outside

This is my contribution to the new On the Hunt for Joy Challenge started by Cee Neuner. The first challenge is Get Outside.

Having been for a walk around the neighborhood yesterday morning when it was hovering around freezing today the temperature has plummeted. The wind is howling and we’re under a snow squall watch so my contribution to the challenge is from yesterday.

On a photographic note, I used my new Sony mirrorless camera with my silvernose OM Zuiko 50mm lens from 1976 adapted to it.

October Squares: Lines in the Snow

This is my contribution to day 30 of Becky’s October Squares: Lines photo challenge. This is the penultimate day. It’s been fun but I ran out of days with six lines and squares left over.

I’m not sure what small mammal left all the tracks in the snow but I’m pretty sure that it should have been hibernating.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Filling the Frame

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Filling the Frame.

I had a few ideas for the challenge before thinking of filling the frame with just one thing.

Filling the frame with water at sunrise.

Sunrise waves.

 

Filling the frame with snow.

Tracks in the snow with shadows.

 

Filling the frame with leaves.

Variegated Hosta leaves.

 

Filling the frame with trees.

Autumn tree trunks.

 

Shadow across the tracks.

A shot from a walk earlier in the week and originally taken for my response to the Lens-Artists Weekly Photo Challenge Shadows.

In the end I didn’t use it for the challenge but put a film type border around it using Snapseed.

It’s strange, in my film era I was never a fan of these types of borders but nowadays I think they can give an image a certain character.
