Not How It Appears In Reality

A visit to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise last Sunday morning and another photo taken with my fisheye lens.

I parked at the side of the road along the shoreline where the breakwater for Wiarton Marina sticks out into the bay. The breakwater is roughly 90 degrees from the shoreline but the distortion caused by extreme angle of view of the fisheye lens makes it look as if the shoreline and breakwater form a U rather than an L.

Friendly Friday: Whereabouts

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Photo Challenge: Whereabouts.

As it’s currently autumn in the northern hemisphere I thought about some of the places that I have lived in and taken photos of in the autumn.

Autumn colour on the Niagara Escarpment behind the boats in Wiarton Marina. Taken on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada last weekend.

October Squares: Lines at the Marina

This is my contribution to day 14 of Becky’s October Squares: Lines photo challenge.

Taken yesterday morning after going down to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise.

After the sun was up I made a short detour to check the autumn colour on the Niagara Escarpment. I noticed that the masts of the boats moored at the Wiarton Marina made a nice line of lines for the challenge.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: The End of Summer

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: The End of Summer.

I decided to go with a small selection of photos from the weekend as we’re nearly at the end of the summer.

Storm clouds over Wiarton Marina and Colpoy’s Bay on Saturday morning. It won’t be long before all the boats are being pulled out of the water.
