Photo Challenge #49 / Texture

20210116ma_0187“Weathered” / Theme: Texture

A little about this photo…

There’s something about weathered objects at the beach. I put my focus on this whatever-it-is. (I think it’s some sort of old cement footing that may have belonged to a boardwalk or something in the past.)

The lighthouse in the background is out of focus. I tried putting the focus on the lighthouse, but I like this shot better.

I think it’s because of the texture.

Photo Challenge #48 / Look Up

20211106ma_3777“Pretty in Yellow” / Theme: Look Up

A little about this photo…

The leaves are almost off the trees by this time in November. But I did get this shot a week or so ago. Isn’t that yellow against the blue enchanting? Even more so when the sun cooperated with the photographer and did its thing!

Photo Challenge #47 / Symmetry

20211106ma_3917“Mill House” / Theme: Symmetry

A little about this photo…

I’m going with the symmetry prompt for this photo. I love photographing old buildings. This old grist mill was built in 1809 and was responsible for grinding wheat, oats, rye, and barley and provided flour to the British Army during the War of 1812.

Photo Challenge #46 / All is Calm

20211106ma_3927“Waterfall Calm” / Theme: All is Calm

A little about this photo…

There’s something very calming about water and waterfalls. I even feel the calm just looking at the photo.

To get that soft-looking water, I shot at f22 with my shutter speed at 0.4 seconds.

This, by the way, is the Lower Falls at Ball’s Falls in Ontario.

Photo Challenge #45 / A Long Time Ago

20211010ma_3656“Lantern” / Theme: A Long Time Ago

A little about this photo…

I just love lanterns and candles and old lighting fixtures.

For this shot, I like how the sunlight and shadows were falling on this particular lantern.

Photo Challenge #44 / Goodnight

20210918ma_3350“Goodnight Moon” / Theme: Goodnight

A little about this photo…

We were down at the lake for the sunset. As the sun dipped below the horizon, I turned around to see this sight … all the boats, tucked in for the night.

Photo Challenge #43 / See That?

20211019ma_3666“Nature’s Lace” / Theme: See That?

A little about this photo…

This is what happens to the husks of tomatillos come autumn. They turn into these lacey little “pumpkins”. They weigh next to nothing. It’s almost like they’re tumbleweeds!

Photo Challenge #42 / Golden Sunset

20210918ma_3344“Fishing at Sunset” / Theme: Golden Sunset

A little about this photo…

We went down to the pier to take a walk. Of course, I had my camera. What luck that we were blessed with such a beautiful sunset! And to make that sunset even better were the people fishing off the pier.

Photo Challenge #41 / Window

20210918ma_3361“Room with a View” / Theme: Window

A little about this photo…

A visit to my favorite lighthouse, and I got this shot of one of the windows. Oh, for the chance to get a glimpse from that window. Unfortunately, not something that’s allowed.

Photo Challenge #40 / Great Outdoors

20211001ma_3631“Until Niagara Falls” / Theme: Great Outdoors

A little about this photo…

Niagara Falls is literally in my backyard. Okay, I’m exaggerating there. It’s not literally in my backyard (and I’m actually kind of glad about that), but it’s close. Close enough that we went for a little photo walk there this week. My challenge is to capture the falls from a different point of view.

This week, I got this shot, and I’m using the prompt: the Great Outdoors. 

Because it is: Great. And outdoors.
