Throwback Thursday travels back to North Wales about 30 years ago. The Great Orme is a limestone headland on the coast of North Wales.
A storm was causing waves to break over the sea wall. I was photographing the breaking waves while trying to watch out for any waves that were going to soak me and the camera. As it’s the Irish Sea it’s salt water which is a lot worse for camera equipment than fresh water.
This shot was taken on the south west side of the Great Orme looking north.

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 snow.

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Stone.
Currently living on the Bruce Peninsula, a limestone promontory separating Lake Huron from Georgian Bay there’s rather a lot of stone around here. The eastern side of the peninsula is formed by the Niagara Escarpment. The same escarpment that the Niagara River flows over at Niagara Falls.
Autumn colour on a section of the Niagara Escarpment. Some of the limestone face of the escarpment is visible through the trees with fallen boulders along the shoreline.

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge: Outdoors.
As someone who is primarily an outdoor photographer I had plenty of photos to pick from but I needed a theme to follow. So I decided to go with as wide a variety of subject matter as possible and to start in the 1970s and end this summer.
One of my earliest photos. The negative for the first version got lost or damaged so I reshot the scene next time there was snow. Trees in snow, Hatherton, Cheshire, England in the mid 1970s.

The new Wits End Weekly Photo Challenge is Found Art.
I was considering a few photos and then thought about some of my shots of waves and ripples at sunrise and sunset. I find the randomness of the waves and ripples and the way the colours in the sky reflect on the water interesting.
