Reflections on the Bay

This is my contribution to Patti’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Serene prompt.

The first thing that came to mind on reading the prompt was reflections on calm water. After initially considering images from various locations I decided to go with a small selection from Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Two of a Kind: American Avocets

Two Of A Kind

Two summer plumage American Avocets feeding on a slough near Punnichy, Saskatchewan. Although the photo is as much about the ripples as the birds.

Plus I’ve always liked the two drops of water falling from the males bill. I say it’s a male because the bill is straighter than the bird in the background. The more curved bill means that the background bird is a female.

A look back at some of my personal favorite square photos from previous months of squares. Some were popular, some not so popular at the time.

This was a post in Kind Squares Month and is my day 17 contribution to Becky’s October Squares on the theme of Past Squares.

As the evenings start to lengthen

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: As the evenings start to lengthen prompt.

I quickly decided to go back to pre Covid-19 times when I could get out and about more. Then I remembered the spring of 2008. The last spring I was living in Southampton, Ontario and a year when there was some interesting snow and ice formations on Lake Huron.

Throwback Thursday: 4th March 2021

Late winter and this section of Lake Huron is frozen and partly snow covered. Chantry Island and its lighthouse is on the horizon.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Dusk

A week into spring and there’s some interesting ice formations and patches of open water on Lake Huron at dusk.

Two weeks into spring and the only ice left is small pieces in the shallows along the shoreline. Chantry Island on the horizon at sunset.

Ice Formations at Sunset

My Throwback Thursday post this week continues my look back at the spring thaw on Lake Huron at Southampton, Ontario in 2008.

These ice formations were just off the shoreline as the setting sun illuminated them.
