Monochrome Monday travels back just over a week when I headed down to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise.
With thick cloud over much of Colpoy’s Bay and the Niagara Escarpment I realised that there wasn’t going to be much colour in the sky. So I shot with the intention of doing monochrome conversions of some of the shots.
Monochrome Monday is from my testing of various lenses adapted to a mirrorless camera this summer.
Hosta leaves after rain with a 35mm CCTV lens.
Monochrome Monday travels back a couple of weeks to my first outing with the Samyang 12mm lens.
This group of Coneflowers was quite colourful but I thought that the shapes and features of the flowers would make an interesting monochrome conversion. I went with a high key edit which seems to focus attention on the centres of the Coneflowers.
Monochrome Monday travels back a week to an early morning walk around the local town after photographing the sunrise.
I don’t know how many times I have walked past or through this wood structure on Berford Street, Wiarton. I have no idea what it’s supposed to be or represent. The path behind it is steeper than it looks in the photo and leads to a parking area. In the winter it can be treacherous when there’s snow and ice on it.
Monochrome Monday features an old barn at sunrise. A back road on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada.
Storm clouds over Lake Huron isolated with a telephoto lens. Southampton, Ontario, Canada.
Monochrome Monday travels back a couple of weeks to one of my walks testing various lenses adapted to a mirrorless camera.
This time I was testing a 25mm CCTV lens. It was the first outing with the lens when the focusing mechanism first jammed and then stopped focusing on anything beyond about five feet.
Some Bracken fronds with the lens. I rather like the way the light and dark patches in the background have made parts of the centre frond stand out.
