Random Half Dozen


After two weeks of incredible sunny weather 
we are heading into a couple of days of overcast skies.


Clouds made their appearance yesterday morning 
as we were going over one of the bridges to Halifax.


One thing for certain, overcast skies make for great colour contrasts
as seen here with this grain elevator shot along the waterfront.


We are just passing through the peak of fall 'leaf colour' season.
A great backdrop for this handsome fella!


 Clouds and trees.


Maple leaf.


My girl Sophie.

    1. Thanks so much Fiona. As you know, this is a special time of year for us 'photographers'. Your recent early morning shots were breath-taking!

  4. I find that gray days produce better light than bright sunny ones. :)

    1. So do we Nancy. Everything (the light) is more condensed and not do diffused. Makes sense to me!

  5. Beautiful photos, Jim! Sophie is such a pretty gal. Bet she keeps you and Ron very active. I really like that second photo. Is it an abandoned place? And you are right. I am always happiest when there are clouds in the sky; they make for better photographs. Too much sun casts harsh shadows, and often washes out colours. But then you already know all this!

    1. Thanks Martha. Sophie keeps us moving but she is very attentive to what and where we want her to do at any given time. Otherwise, we would be run-ragged!! lol
      That grain elevator probably should be abandoned but it is still in use and in GREAT need of a paint job and new windows!!!

  8. Oh! I love a nice grain elevator! I LOVE farmers! : )
    Awesome shot of Mr. Handsome.
    Our leaves are not quite brilliant yet, but I know the brilliance is coming soon!
    Happy Thursday to my favorite Canadian crew. Love, Beck

    1. Then you would love the ones we have here down on the waterfront! They load grain from the west onto cargo ships from all over the world.
      Oh that Mr.Handsome!
      You guys are that much further south I guess and have to wait a little longer for the colour Becky.
      Happy Thursday to you too, Beck!

    1. Glad you liked it Davine. I know you are seeing tons of colours on your journey across Australia. Your photos are stunning! Plus, I am learning so much about your country.

  10. Great colors there! Our color is spotted, think we just don't have many of the colorful trees here. The oaks just go brown - lots of oaks and pine - not many maple. The early trees, turn yellow and fall.

    1. Our oaks turn brown right away as well Sharon. Hey, your nice weather most of the year makes up for the lack of brightly coloured fall trees, I guess.

  11. Such a special time, dark skies bring out the vibrancy of fall colours!!

    Mmmmm!!

  12. For a photographer, clouds are simply a natural light diffuser.
    Great shot of Ron!
