Monochrome Monday

Squirrel in monochrome.

Monochrome Monday travels back two days to Saturday morning.

I had set up outside trying for shots of the birds and small mammals in the yard. The light was very uneven as the sun was shining through trees that are only now coming into leaf.

This American Red Squirrel was in the shade with sunlight illuminating the grass behind it. I liked the detail in the shot, especially the claws, but didn’t like the lighting in the colour version so did a monochrome conversion to tone down the background.

Cee's Black and White Photo Challenge

A Dandelion growing on a boulder

My contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Flower of Any Kind.

With Thursday afternoon warm and sunny I went for a short walk looking for an image for this challenge. With being on crutches and having limited mobility in the right shoulder I’m having trouble framing and composing as accurately as I would like.

I spotted this solitary Dandelion growing in a small patch of dirt trapped in a boulder. It was a mostly monochrome image apart from the Dandelion so I did a selective colour treatment to remove a little more of the colour.

Ivy leaves and Lichen.

Some Ivy leaves and Lichen on a tree trunk I spotted on a walk yesterday.

Having been discharged from the rehab unit I’m back at home. I’m on crutches outside the house and have limited movement in the right shoulder but I decided to go for a walk with the camera. It’s been a long time since I had a wander around with a camera.

It was the variety of greens in the leaves and Lichen that caught my eye.
