A fleeting moment!

Hello again to everyone!  Firstly apologies to my fellow bloggers that I haven’t commented on any of your posts, but hey at least I’m looking at them, lol!!  Time is very short (as is for everyone).  This post is just to say hello, I’m still here! 😀 Harvest is going to be very early this year so this might be a fleeting moment, very much as this image was…We have had so little rain this summer, but one afternoon last month I saw this feather covered in rain drops on our back deck and thought – macro!  Click on the image for a larger view.

Converted to b&w using SEP2, with a blue filter to darken the background and camera exposure set for the white feather.

It’s in colour…Monochrome Madness 26!

This week is the 26th Monochrome Madness Challenge posted on Leanne Cole’s blog (Wednesday mornings AEST).  Since it is a landmark posting of half a year, the challenge this week was to post a colour image that is monochrome.  I do love my bits of old wood and found this one last Saturday – weathered to this silver grey with a hint of orange from the lichen.  Congratulations to both Leanne and Laura Macky for starting and curating (Leanne being the curator) to what is fast becoming an institution 🙂

Another image taken from the exceptionally hard frost last Sunday and my entry for the 23rd Monochrome Madness Challenge –  a frozen blackberry stem…The challenge initiated by Laura Macky (wishing her well) and Leanne Cole (curator) is a weekly smorgasbord of monochrome images from photographers all over the world and published Wednesday mornings (AEST) on Leanne’s blog 🙂
