It is now officially winter down here in Oz and this last week was cold, dark and foggy (maximums of 6 C which for us is cold!). I like the fog and the silhouettes it creates – these are evergreen Eucalyptus trees. This is my submission for MM 2-14 hosted by the ever hard working Leanne Cole on Wednesdays – do have a look for a wonderful variety of monochrome images.
At last I have had the time to submit to MMC! If you love monochrome images then do take time to visit Leanne Cole‘s regular Wednesday post which features a diverse gallery of images from photographers worldwide. Thanks as always to Leanne for her hard work putting together this post. My entry for this week is more fungi taken in beautiful autumn light 🙂
Hello again everyone! Once more, apologies for not responding to comments (I appreciate them!) or liking posts, but at least I’m managing to post for Monochrome Madness, the first week of year two, hosted by the ever hard working Leanne Cole. I took this nearly a month ago in a landscape shaped by a distant history of volcanoes…the grass is bleached white, it is barren and dry with granite outcrops. On this day, there were massive clouds moving very quickly causing huge shadow and light contrasts If you click in, there are cows on the left crest in what I think of as a folded or undulating landscape 🙂
A brief hello again! The week has been a very sultry and stormy one here, a dramatic end to our official summer. This image was taken in near infrared late on Saturday afternoon as a storm was building – I love the way clouds render in near IR 🙂 🙂 It is also my submission for Monochrome Madness – week 51 (and a special week coming up next week) hosted by the ever hard working Leanne Cole and published tomorrow (AEDT).
Hello! 🙂 I’ve been absent again and being realistic, with harvest about a month away I’m likely to be sporadic with posts for a while longer. Apologies to comments I haven’t replied to and people whose posts I would like to comment on…BUT I did manage this entry for MMC 50 on the ever hard working Leanne Cole’s blog! (Published tomorrow AEDT) Taken last weekend in very hot and thundery weather, I saw these old and broken power poles – the surreal starkness reminding me almost of a Dali painting 🙂
Yet another week has rolled around and so tomorrow morning (AEST) sees week 34 of Monochrome Madness on Leanne Cole’s blog. If you are interested in monochrome images then do visit the post with global submissions from some very talented artists. This is my submission – ‘A Hint of an Orchid’. I’ve been experimenting with very shallow depth of field using the 105 mm macro and am starting to get the type of images I want 🙂
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 🙂
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 🙂
