A contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Photo Edits.
A recent post for Becky’s October Squares: Lines photo challenge made me think of the edits I have made to two shots of trees in the autumn. The two shots are of the same group of trees, one is a vertical composition and the other horizontal.
The vertical shot.
A monochrome conversion of the vertical composition.
An edited version of the horizontal composition with a film type border added using Snapseed.

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.
Filling the frame with snow.
Filling the frame with leaves.
Filling the frame with trees.
Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire, England in the 1990s.
I had gone to Bickerton Hill, Cheshire looking for wildlife and any early autumn colour. I noticed the blue green of a solitary conifer amongst a sea of green Silver Birch trees and used a telephoto lens to pick the conifer out.
This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Magical.
I was thinking about the challenge and had this post mostly written in my head on Sunday evening. On Monday I started considering a completely different selection of photos before deciding to combine my ideas.
My original ideas was to detail some of the magical experiences photographing nature subjects. Then I started thinking about some of the magical landscapes and skies I have photographed.
In the end I went with a mix of nature encounters and landscapes.
Storm clouds and light beams over Loch Arkaig, Scotland.
Pond Skaters, not only can they walk on water, they also mate on the water. Taken on a garden pond in Hatherton, Cheshire, England.
An Osprey with a White Sucker on the Lake Huron shoreline, Ontario, Canada. Not only can the bird spot and catch a fish in rough water but it can then carry the fish in the most aerodynamic position.
Snow Geese on autumn migration. Taking off from a section of the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area, Saskatchewan, Canada. This is a small part of one of the flocks in the area.

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Fall.
I had a few ideas for the challenge after photographing some early fall colour at the weekend. In the end I decided to go with a selection of photos of fall colour covering several decades and various locations.
Fall colour on Bickerton Hill, Cheshire, England in the early 1990s.
Fall colour in early snow, Bickerton Hill, Cheshire, England in the late 1980s.
Fall colour behind a slough, Punnichy, Saskatchewan, Canada in the late 1990s.
Fall colour on the Niagara Escarpment, Ontario, Canada a few years ago.
Fall colour in the mist, Hatherton, Cheshire, England in the late 1970s.
