Hare’s looking at you…!

Scroll down to content

It hasn’t been a good few weeks for taking any new images (but I’m NOT going to go on about the weather 😯 ).  This is my image for this weeks Monochrome Madness Challenge which is curated by Leanne Cole.  I posted this image in colour last December, but always thought it might work in mono…so here is this beautiful hare – all eyes and ears but now in black and white 🙂

  1. I remember this guy from your color post – yes, it does work in B&W – I think in a large part because of the very narrow depth of focus. Any more detail in the surrounding and it would come off as too busy. Good submission for the MMC 🙂

      1. Thanks – it will bittersweet as we help Laura’s dad to empty out his house as he prepares to move out to Colorado – closing a chapter in her live – never to be quite the same since the loss of her mom in November.

  2. What a beautiful shot 😀 How close did you get to the hare? I only saw one once and he run away like crazy, i was more than 200meters away 😦

    1. Hi Ben, thanks for dropping by and taking the time to comment. Possibly yes, but toned it to bring out the hare out from the grass – it was always primarily a colour image but an experiment with the mono. Always good to hear an opinion 🙂

  3. Wonderful picture, Lisa, really wonderful stuff! A great wildlife study of a creature that I find fascinating – and that I see out on the Levels from time to time. What sort of toning have you used? It works well. And I greatly envy you this shot, I would love to take such a portrait! Adrian

    1. I am glad you liked it 🙂 I have waited for a few years to capture a hare this close (and being still!!). It’s funny as I can clearly remember that I had been holding my breath the whole time taking the shots but hadn’t realised until it ran off! Cyanotype toning 🙂
