January Squares: First-light

This is my day one contribution to Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge.

January’s prompt is words ending in light so here’s the first light of day and my first cheat using a hyphen. The sun rising over White Cloud Island in the mouth of Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario.

Monochrome Monday: 18th November 2019

Monochrome Monday travels back a couple of weeks to the first Sunday of November.

I had gone down to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise to find some interesting cloud formations but little colour in the sky.

Taken with the telephoto lens in my lightweight kit of three manual focus primes to isolate some of the clouds and some interesting bands of light on the water.

It shows the mouth of Colpoy’s Bay with White Cloud Island merging with the base of the Niagara Escarpment. The face of the escarpment is visible close to the right edge of the shot.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Monochrome

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Monochrome.

Monochrome; noun, a picture executed in black and white or in varying tones of only one colour.

I was down at the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise on Sunday morning. I had taken my recently assembled lightweight camera kit.

It comprises of a small mirrorless camera body and three manual focus prime lenses, a wide angle, a standard and a telephoto. They all fit into a small camera bag, a Domke F-5XB. By far the smallest bag I’ve ever used or owned.

I put the telephoto lens on the camera and started isolating sections of the sky and water that were predominantly one colour.

Tuesday Photo Challenge – Overhead

This is my contribution to the Tuesday Photo Challenge – Overhead.

My first thought was looking up at trees followed by birds flying overhead.

Then I thought about some of the sunrises and sunsets where I used a wide angle lens to show of much of the sky as possible.
