It was a misty morning in the village of Colpoys on Colpoys Bay. We were waiting for the sunrise and this pretty little sailboat was anchored on the bay. I put on my telephoto lens and took a few shots. Because of the conditions the results were rather flat – so I started to experiment in Photoshop with several different layers and techniques.
Hope you enjoy the result.

Another shot at a different angle of the sunrise over Colpoys Bay on the long weekend. This is a great place to shoot from with lots of angles to choose from.

The last long weekend of the summer. Sleep in, relax. …wait what – Not this time.My wife and I were up at 6:00 am – Stopped at Tim’s for coffee and tea and then to a little cove just past the Wiarton Marina to take pictures of the sunrise. We may not have slept in but it is relaxing to sit and watch the sun rise. I am not a morning person but I never regret getting up for a beautiful start to the day.

Watching the sun set (and taking pictures of it) is one of my favorite things to do. Here we are overlooking Colpoys Bay near Wiarton Ontario. The sunsets have been a little hazy lately and I hear this is a result of all the forest fires out West.

This is a follow up to my previous post – Sunrise Surprise. While I still had a few minutes to capture the sunrise I scooted down the shore and found this snow covered cedar with a young tree poking through. It provided an interesting foreground for this shot. Colpoy’s Bay was frozen over but not enough to go out on the ice. What a beautiful way to start the day.

Sunrise Surprise – Wiarton

I was in Wiarton Ontario this weekend (about 2 hr’s north of where I live) to take some winter photos. The weather prediction was for overcast skies but I got out early in hopes of at least some good light. To my surprise the clouds opened up at the horizon and allowed for few minutes of a beautiful surprise sunrise. I just got out of the car and was lucky to get this shot before it disappeared.

Later throughout the morning there were a few more times the sun poked through but the rest of the weekend was indeed overcast and actually rainy on Sunday. Despite the weather I think it was a successful weekend and I will share a few more shots in the coming days.
