Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire, England in the late 1970s. The trees are growing in a field belonging to a nursery and were ready to be transplanted to customers. As a photography student my summer job was working in the fields belonging to the nursery so I was familiar with what was growing where.
On a foggy autumn day I went for a walk around the fields looking for shots. The original was a colour slide but it was monochromatic so when I copied the slide I did a monochrome conversion. The bright section at the top of the frame means that the sun was quite high when the shot was taken.

This week’s Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire, England in the 1990s.
This is a juvenile Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea) photographed at a reservoir in south Cheshire. The water level was low with mud in front of the hide and there was a thick fog blanketing the area. The Grey Heron spent some time wandering around the mud before hunkering down and looking grumpy.
This is a copy of a Kodachrome slide, it hasn’t been desaturated or converted to monochrome although I did bring out the film grain when editing the shot.
Monochrome Monday is going back a week. I went down to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise but a fog bank rolled across the bay before the sun came up. That gave me the opportunity to shoot some monochrome compositions.
Sunday morning of week 33 saw me down at Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise. There was patchy mist and fog on the way there but the bay was mostly clear when I got down there.
That didn’t last long, a thick bank of fog rolled across Colpoy’s Bay before the sun came up. I waited to see if the fog would clear for the sunrise and lost track of time. I was surprised to see the sun breaking through the top of the fog bank well above the horizon.
Monochrome Monday is going back a week when I went down to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise. There was layers of fog on the Niagara Escarpment across the bay which caught my eye.
It was monochromatic when I took the photo so it was planned as as a possible post for Monochrome Monday. Another shot from when I was in a retro mood and was using a selection of manual focus primes.
