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.

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.

Monochrome Spring Sunrise.

A monochrome conversion of a sunrise from this time last year as I still have a minimum of three weeks left in rehab recovering from the fall I had in March. I’m hoping to be walking and getting out with a camera by the end of May.
