My Plan for Twenty-nineteen

This week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge prompt is “My Vision For Twenty-nineteen” which in the early hours of Monday morning seems rather appropriate.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) I will be posting week 52, the last entry of my 52 week photo project for 2018. I wasn’t planning on having a project for 2019. I am dealing with health issues and family issues back in the U.K. and don’t know if I will be able too stick to a project for 2019.

However, due to not being able to sleep I have been considering a project or plan for 2019. It’s still not fully formed and I may not be able to follow a routine due to the various issues but I have the beginnings of a project.

I’m going to call it “Monochrome Minimalism” or “Minimalistic Monochrome” or maybe something completely different as I’m typing this in the early hours when it seems like a good idea.

So here’s a minimalistic monochrome Maple leaf on snow from a recent walk.

Week 44: Clinging on

We had lots of wind, rain and wet snow in week 44. I went for a walk on Sunday morning and spotted this solitary Maple leaf still clinging on despite the recent weather.

The last few

A shot from a walk on the Sunday afternoon of week 43.

This Maple tree had lost almost all its leaves, there was a small group of leaves left in one spot that caught my eye.

Week 38: The first day of autumn

Technically autumn started on Saturday evening of week 38 so Sunday would be the first full day of autumn. I went for a walk on Sunday morning looking for some autumn colour. I was in a retro mood and used my oldest digital camera body, now 11 years old, with a manual focus prime lens I purchased prior to April 1982.

It’s looking like being a strange autumn. Some leaves were changing colour a month or more ago and have since fallen while some trees have sections of leaves turning colour while the majority of the tree is still green.

I wasn’t really happy with any of the photos of branches and sections of trees changing colour but noticed this small group of Maple leaves in some nice light.
