Fog in the forest….

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.

MMC2-10 – and more fungi!

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 🙂

MMC41 – Broken….

This is my entry for the MMC week 41, hosted and curated by Leanne Cole and devised by Leanne and Laura Macky.  In my mind this image is called “Broken” – nothing was straight and there were thunderstorms on the horizon – a beautiful bleak landscape 🙂

Please take time to look at Leanne’s post – lots of monochrome talent form all over the globe 🙂

A Topiary Dream…

I’ve been too busy to really play with the near IR camera but now I have a week off…I found the website for this garden, Alowyn Gardens, in Yarra Glen, and immediately thought of IR for the topiary (I have a BIG weakness for formal gardens!)…so here is the first of a few 🙂  Also my entry for Monochrome Madness, week 29 hosted by Leanne Cole.

Black ice?!!

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 🙂

Poppy seed head – Monochrome Madness Challenge.

This is a detail of the crown or top of a poppy seed head taken with the macro lens and lit by natural light from a window – I found the pattern amazing :).  This is also my entry for the 22nd Monochrome Madness Challenge which is posted on Wednesday mornings (Australia Eastern Standard Time) by curator Leanne Cole.
