Monochrome Monday travels to Cheshire, England after some light snow has fallen on the Cheshire plain.
The snow shows the fields as a patchwork with some interesting clouds on the horizon. Taken from Bickerton Hill looking towards Chester and the River Dee estuary.
Monochrome Monday is a study in the aftermath of some overnight freezing rain.
I went for a walk and liked the arrangement of icicles formed by the freezing rain but the colours were somewhat muted so I decided to try converting the shot to monochrome.
Monochrome Monday is going back to spring last year and a late snow storm.
When the storm arrived this fence was still partially buried from the winter. Once the storm was over it was fully buried.
Monochrome Monday is going down to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline at sunrise. One of those mornings where there was some interesting clouds over the bay but very little colour in the sky as the sun came up.
I noticed the similarity between the patterns in the snow and ice on the bay and the patterns in the clouds and tried to find a composition that balanced the two with the idea of a monochrome conversion.
Monochrome Monday travels back to last autumn and the vertical version of a shot I used at the time.
It occurred to me some time ago that the shots may make an interesting monochrome conversion. Having used the horizontal version at the time I decided to try converting the vertical one.
It then sat in my pending folder waiting to be used until something made me think of the word hodgepodge and I was encouraged to use it. To me hodgepodge is one of those words heard quite a lot as a child but that seems to have fallen out of usage these days.
Anyone not familiar with the word a definition of hodgepodge is a confused mixture.
Monochrome Monday is going back to Saskatchewan, Canada in the late 1990s.
A frozen slough at sunrise with patches of snow around the edge of the slough.
Monochrome Monday is going back a few years with a visit to the dock at Colpoy’s Bay, Ontario for a sunrise.
A recent Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge where I posted a section of a rainbow got me thinking about some of other photos taken with a long telephoto while waiting for the light or for wildlife to cooperate.
I don’t remember why I ended up photographing the moon unless I got to Colpoy’s Bay so early I was waiting for the sunrise.
