Volcanic Skye landscape

Monochrome Monday travels back 40 years to Easter on the Isle of Skye in 1980 as I continue the exploration of my black and white negatives.

I have forgotten the name of this location, if I recall correctly it’s on the east coast of the island south of Staffin. There are lots of volcanic locations on Skye but a Google search didn’t come up with a name for this one.

Monochrome Monday: 15th July 2019

Monochrome Monday travels back two days to Saturday morning.

I had gone down to the Colpoy’s Bay shoreline for the sunrise. Conditions were looking good when I got up but when I got to the bay I could see a solid bank of cloud over the mouth where the sun would be rising.

There was never much colour in the sky so I was shooting with the idea of doing a monochrome conversion for Monochrome Monday.

Variegated leaves in monochrome.

Monochrome Monday travels back a day and another of my rambles trying out the CCTV lens adapted to fit my mirrorless camera.

I photographed these variegated Hosta leaves after some rain. The variegation and the range of greens in the leaves caught my eye. I thought that the range of tones would make an interesting monochrome conversion.

Portrait of a bull Bison.

Monochrome Monday is going back to Saskatchewan, Canada in the late 1990s.

I was friendly with a Bison rancher and could drive out to the herd using the ranch pickup truck as the animals were used to seeing the vehicle. I could set up a tripod in the back of the pickup and photograph the Bison at close range.

Old Barn in the Mist.

Monochrome Monday is only going back a couple of years.

As the image is almost timeless I decided to make it look like an old film image by adding a film type border and an uneven vignette.

Boulder with lines of Quartz.

Monochrome Monday is going back to last autumn and a visit to the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario.

I was photographing the boulders that surround Dominion Lookout at the bottom of High Street. I isolated this boulder because of the multiple white quartz lines running through it as I thought I would make an interesting monochrome conversion.
