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.
Thursday evening of week 40 saw me looking for autumn colour on some local back roads during the golden hour.
I was rather disappointed with the autumn colour but noticed the long shadows and warm evening light on my favourite old barn. I ended up walking along a ditch to get to a position where my shadow wouldn’t be in shot.
Alternatively, 30 minutes before sunset as a follow-up to week 36.
An evening of week 37 saw me on a local back road. I noticed that the low sun was casting long shadows and illuminating a barn and surrounding trees with golden light.
For week 32 I was in a retro mood and at the weekend I left my zoom lenses at home and packed my smallest camera bag with with four manual focus prime lenses. Sometimes I like going back to the way I shot film for decades.
It was originally supposed to be three prime lenses, a wide angle, a normal and a telephoto like I used most of the time as a photography student. However I found a deal on a fisheye lens that was impossible to resist so it got added to the original three lenses.
Sunday morning saw me returning from the sunrise at Colpoy’s Bay to find some interesting mist over some of the fields. I ended up taking more photos of the mist over various fields than I had of the sunrise. The photo is mist around an old barn soon after sunrise and was taken with the wide angle lens.
