Winter’s Day

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts: Winter’s Day colour challenge.

Recently we’ve had grey, overcast skies, bare trees and snow on the ground. So a couple of my intentional camera movement shots of trees in snow on the South Bruce Peninsula seemed an obvious choice for this prompt.

Shades of Red

Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge: 40 Shades of Red

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge: Forty Shades of Red.

A couple of hours after the prompt was posted I headed down to Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario for the sunrise.

I hadn’t given the prompt much thought until the rising sun started turning the cloud red.

Basic Black

Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge: Simply Black

One of my back to basics set-ups. A base model mirrorless camera and a small, mechanical, manual focus prime lens.

A set-up like this allows me to shoot digital the same way I used to shoot film, what I call getting back to basics. This takes me back to the film kit I used as a photography student all those years ago.

As the camera, lens and my custom sling strap are all black I thought a monochrome conversion would make a contribution to the Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge: Simply Black theme. I added some film grain when doing the monochrome conversion.

Negative Space Orange Daylilies

2021: Orange Daylilies

A portrait of two Orange Daylilies in front of a large limestone boulder.

I thought the background was different and used negative space to emphasize it. Another test of the TTArtisan 50mm f/1.2 lens for photographing flowers and plants.

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge: Orange.

Easter Yellow

This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts Colour Challenge: Easter Yellow.

Now I’ll admit that I have no idea what makes a shade/tone of yellow an Easter Yellow but I have recently photographed a few yellow objects.
