Cloudless at Dawn

Travel Tuesday this week is traveling back just over three years to Colpoy’s Bay at dawn in late autumn.

The water level in the bay has risen since this photo was taken and the old wood piles are now less visible.

Blue Hour Clouds

Travel Tuesday is traveling back to Colpoy’s Bay at dawn one year ago this week.

This is a small park in the town of Wiarton on the South Bruce Peninsula. Bylaws introduced at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic put the park out of bounds. Then a big construction project on the highway through town also means a significant detour to access the park now there is some access.

Wide Angle Perspective 4

This is my day 31 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective and the last of my wide angle perspective series.

It’s been interesting picking squares and putting together series for the month. A big thank you to Becky for running the challenge with such a wide ranging theme.

I started the month with a monochrome photo of these wood piles so I thought I would end the month with a different photo using a different camera and lens combo plus it’s in colour this time.

It’s still not obvious that the grass behind the wood piles is only a few inches below the top of them and that they’re holding back almost two feet of dirt and rocks.

Monochrome Perspective on a Fence

This is my day 1 contribution to Becky’s July Squares on the theme of Perspective.

This may look like a fence but it’s actually a row of wood piles holding back about 20 inches (50 cm) of dirt and rocks. It’s deceptive, the grass behind the fence is only a couple of inches below the top of it.

There’s a second perspective involved in the photo. When I was using black and white film regularly I the 1970s and 80s I could “see” in monochrome. Once I stopped using black and white film I lost that ability at some point. However, both my modern mirrorless cameras have an electronic viewfinder which can be set to monochrome. The monochrome viewfinder is helping me get the ability to see in monochrome back. I am once again noticing tones and light and shade before I put the viewfinder to my eye.
