Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 1st June 2020

Monochrome Monday travels back a couple of days to a walk around the neighborhood.

I was struck by the various shades of green of the newly opened Maple leaves. However, it was a grey, overcast day so rather than blue sky showing through the gaps in the branches it was featureless grey. So I decided to try a monochrome conversion using a red filter which increased the contrast between the various shades of green.

I rather like the way the leaves have become an almost abstract pattern with the branches giving a clue to what you’re looking at.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Opening

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Opening.

A couple of hours after the challenge was posted I went for a walk around the neighborhood with a camera. Spring has arrived on the South Bruce Peninsula in the past week with lots of leaves opening on many of the local Maple trees.

As a result I decided to go with opening leaves as the theme for my contribution to the challenge.

The different colours almost make the opening leaves look like blossom.
