2020: In Monochrome

This week the Cosmic Photo Challenge prompt is Shades of Grey.

As is sometimes the case, I started considering the prompt and went off on a tangent. I decided that my contribution to the prompt would be a look back at a small selection of monochrome images from 2020.

Monochrome Monday: 23rd March 2020

Paper Birch trees again the sky. Taken on a walk around the neighborhood during lockdown a day or two into spring.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Surprise

Backlit Maple leaves in early summer. Taken on another walk around the neighborhood.

Monochrome Monday: 12th October 2020

Storm clouds over Colpoy’s Bay at sunrise in autumn. There was a few mornings last autumn when the cloud cover made me shoot monochrome images.

2020: Natural Detail

This is my contribution to the Friendly Friday Challenge Review 2020.

I decided to go with the theme of details of the natural world. A small selection of photos from 2020.

Silent Sunday: 3rd May 2020

The green moss and orange lichen on a limestone boulder caught my eye on a walk in the spring.

CBWC: Hosta Leaves Detail

Early summer saw me experimenting with the monochrome options on a mirrorless camera. Variegated Hosta leaves in monochrome.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Negative Space

Summer also saw me experimenting with photographing flowers and plants with various unusual lenses. A Coneflower photographed with a fast portrait lens wide open.

A sign of autumn.

Late summer saw the leaves starting to change colour. This solitary orange Maple leaf caught my eye when I was walking past it.

Creativity in the Time of Covid

This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Creativity in the Time of Covid prompt.

I decided to keep it simple and go with a small selection of photos taken during my time in lockdown.

On the Hunt for Joy Challenge: Mix Play with Everyday
Clouds streaking across the sky at dusk. I used the live composite setting on my Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II. All my sunrise and sunset locations were closed so I set up in a gap in the trees around the yard.
Cosmic Photo Challenge: From an Unusual Angle
Paper Birch trees against a blue sky on the South Bruce Peninsula. I was going for regular walks around the neighborhood. Sometimes the sky seemed deeper blue than normal. Possibly due to the lack of aircraft flying at the time.
Wordless Wednesday: 15th April 2020
Close up of a Pine cone. I set up a table top studio and photographed things that I had picked up on my walks around the neighborhood.
