Cosmic Photo Challenge: Cosmically Circular/Cosmically Square!

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Cosmically Circular/Cosmically Square!

I considered this challenge for some time before deciding that my interpretation was going to be round things in the sky, cropped square. Simple.

A moon. Not the moon because we now know that there are other moons out there. Some with more dramatic names, Titan or Deimos, for example. Taken from the dock at Colpoy’s Bay on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario while waiting for the sun to rise.

A manmade circle in the sky. Wiarton Village Fair fireworks on the South Bruce Peninsula. Taken with a telephoto from a couple of miles away across the bay from the dock at Colpoy’s Bay. The same location as the moon photo.

A giant setting sun behind cloud. Taken with a telephoto lens at Little Quill Lake, Saskatchewan during autumn migration. The specks in the photo are distant wildfowl flying to roost.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Signs

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Signs.

There used to be a giant Foodland sign on the front of this abandoned grocery store along with a variety of signs in the windows and on the walls.

Now there are Private Property, No Trespassing signs on the building and utility pole. They were put up because some local kids were using the empty parking lot to skateboard on.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Inside out/outside in/upside down

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Inside out/outside in/upside down.

I briefly considered going with photos of Woodpeckers and Nuthatches feeding upside down but thought that was rather obvious. Plus they’re doing what comes naturally, there is no upside down to them.

Then I thought about some of the photos where there’s a reflection on water that makes you wonder if the photo is the right way up. At which point I started rotating some photos 180 degrees.

These Black Eyed Susan’s look a little odd.

This coloured section of sidewalk looks slightly strange. It makes me think it’s a ceiling.

This Colpoy’s Bay sunrise looks less odd.

Finally, these variegated Hosta leaves look slightly odd.
