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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Monochrome Monday is going back to my days as a photography student in the late 1970s. Originally a simple colour shot, I did a monochrome conversion and some editing in Snapseed before adding a border.
