Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 16th March 2020

Monochrome Monday travels back to the very early 1980s as I continue digitising my slide and negative archives.

This photo of motorcycles in fog was taken in Snowdonia, North Wales as the riders were on their way to the Dragon Motorcycle Rally. A photo taken on Ilford XP1 when I was field testing it. I have posted a different version of the photo previously, this version is the whole negative rather than from a cropped print.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Leading Lines

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Leading Lines.

The prompt gave me a bit of a challenge, while I know about leading lines I rarely seem to use them. Going back through my archives it appears I have never used them regularly.

Clouds zigzag, leading the eyes to the rising sun on Colpoy’s Bay, Ontario.

A section of the Lake Huron shoreline leads the eyes towards the sunrise.

A row of trees disappear, leading the eyes towards the sun shining through the fog.

Foggy trees.

CFFC: Green

This is my contribution to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Green.

I discovered that I had rather a lot of green photos that would work for the challenge. So I decided to go with two very different photos featuring vastly different amounts of green.

One of my abstract trees created by vertically panning the camera during exposure.

Cosmic Photo Challenge: Misty Memories

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: Misty Memories.

A splash of green.

Something about a Pea green boat,

Except that this is a lake, not a sea,

And it’s fog rather than mist,

Where’s the Owl and the Pussy-Cat?

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Taking A Break

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Taking A Break.

I don’t really take breaks, I almost always have a camera with me and my routine is pretty much the same as when I’m at home. I get up early for the sunrises, I’m scanning for birds and wildlife and watching for photo opportunities when out and about.

Which got me thinking about some of the sunrises I’ve seen this summer. We live in an area popular with tourists. It’s fairly common for me to get to one of my local sunrise locations to find people camping despite the parking areas being signposted no overnight camping.

Do you know the really sad part? I’m guessing that these people are camping there simply to save paying for a camp site. I don’t recall ever seeing any of them appear to watch the sunrise.

Here’s four sunrises from this summer. All taken from the dock at Colpoy’s Bay, Ontario, Canada.
