Big Colourful Sky

This was an attempt to capture the big colourful sunset sky as I drove my son to his Karate class. I know phones and driving are a no-no but how could one resist that colour.

Image was captured in December 2022, Northfield Road at Hwy #85, Waterloo, Ontario.
Equipment: Google Pixel 7 Pro, Rear Camera.
Settings: 6.81mm | 1/247 sec. at ƒ/1.9 | ISO486.
Watermark added via Adobe Photoshop.

Milkweed Blizzard

This late blooming Milkweed, well maybe bloomer isn’t the right terminology as we are talking seeds and not flowers, is just releasing its payload now in November. In early fall the pods of this Monarch butterfly favorite split open to reveal silky tufted seeds. Most have already blown away on the autumn wind but as I walked along the edge of the Grand River I happened upon this stubborn plant just getting to it. I took the opportunity to capture some images of the mini blizzard spilling from the dried pods. When I was done my son helped the seeds on their journey by grabbing them in handfuls and throwing them up over his head and into the breeze.

Images were captured in November 2022, Claude Dubrick Trail along the Grand River, Waterloo, Ontario.

Fluffy Dogs and Daffodils

The daffodils are in bloom around the pond and our fluffball Max is so happy to be able to run around outside chasing the birds and sticking his nose into our little waterfall.

Images were captured in my backyard in Waterloo Region, Ontario.

Inky blue,
creeping westward
across the twilight sky.

Daylight’s last stand,
but a thin band
along the horizon.

Dotting the heavens,
boundless possibility
revealed in its wake.

Rooted to the ground,
the dreamer waits
for gravity to relent.
