Heading Up the Bay

2021: Moving Up the Bay

A three minute live composite exposure of clouds moving up Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario at dawn recently. An unusual direction for cloud movement from my observations.

A rare outing for my camera bag of weather sealed, auto focus zooms. I had taken that bag with the intention of using the ultra wide zoom to record star trails over the bay.

That plan was abandoned as there was some thin cloud obscuring the stars. Then the clouds in the photo appeared from behind the Niagara Escarpment and I set up to record them.

Streaking Storm Clouds

2021: Streaking Storm Clouds

A 3 minute live composite exposure of storm clouds streaking across Colpoy’s Bay at dawn.

My Travel Tuesday post this week is a recent visit to the Government Dock in the village of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

One of the rare occasions when I took my camera bag of weather sealed fast zoom lenses rather than my back to basics kit. Although the camera isn’t weather sealed so I still had to protect it whenever there was a brief shower.

Old Wooden Piles at Sunrise

Travel Tuesday this week is continuing my look back at some of the overlooked photos from the 52 week photo project I did in 2018.

Early May saw me down on the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise. I used my telephoto zoom to isolate the old wooden piles sticking out of the water with the sunrise reflected in the bay.
