Saturday morning of week 42 saw me on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario. After several days of strong winds there was some serious waves hitting the shoreline.
They were breaking over rocks surrounding the flagpole at the bottom of High Street in Southampton, the spray hit me a couple of times. I was quite surprised how rough Lake Huron was, I had been down at Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise a few hours earlier and the bay was calmer than I expected given the wind.
In the photo you can see Chantry Island and it’s lighthouse on the horizon left of center.
Week 30 saw me down at the Lake Huron shoreline at the Long Dock Beach in Southampton, the site of the former Short and Long Docks. The Long Dock once connected Chantry Island to the shoreline.
With sun and blue sky it was much different than my past couple of visits to the area.
The sun was still quite low in the sky providing some texture to the wet sand and wave.
I spent part of the summer of 1985 in Ontario, Canada shooting stock for a couple of photo libraries. So Throwback Thursday takes me back 33 years. In a strange coincidence, having moved around Britain and Canada in the intervening years I currently live about 20 minutes from where the photo was taken.
