Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 23rd December 2019

Monochrome Monday is from a recent walk around the neighborhood in the snow.

The shot was almost monochrome before doing the conversion but I added a weak blue tint to give it a cooler tone.

You may think that this is a late Monochrome Monday post but it’s actually an almost monochrome Tuesday post.

This isn’t a monochrome conversion, it’s the full colour version taken on a walk last Wednesday afternoon. I was struck by the amount of snow on the thin branches.

52 week photo project

Week 48. A spot of colour in the snow.

Wednesday afternoon of week 48 saw me going for a walk looking for details in the snow.

About halfway along the walk I spotted this leaf clinging on to the snow covered branch. I took a few variations of the leaf and snow covered branches but as is often the case it was the first version I picked.

I did a selective colour treatment of it as there was just enough colour in the background to be distracting.

Monochrome Monday

Bare branches.

Monochrome Monday travels back a day to a walk on Sunday morning. With a weekend of thick cloud and poor light I decided to shoot with the intention of converting certain shots to monochrome.

I had a telephoto lens on the camera when I set out. At the turn around point of the walk I swapped the telephoto for my fisheye lens. I kept checking overhead looking for some interesting patterns in the bare branches. I centred myself in this group of trees and because the camera is looking straight up there’s not a lot of fisheye distortion.
