Monochrome Monday: 22nd February 2021

Grey lichen on tree bark.

An almost monochromatic image to begin with but the monochrome conversion allowed me to bring out the texture a little more.

Cloud at Sunrise

Monochrome Monday travels back 24 hours to yesterday morning. With no internet connection I checked the weather by looking outside. I saw a few stars through the trees so headed down to Colpoy’s Bay for the sunrise.

The few stars had become one by the time I got there and that one quickly disappeared. As a result I decided to look for monochrome images.

One Word Sunday


I thought of this photo as soon as I read the prompt for One Word Sunday: Change.

Taken in early November almost two weeks before the winter solstice we had already had snow for over a week. I thought the photo was an example of the change of season with autumn leaves and winter snow.

Then I realised that there was a second change involved. It’s the tenth photo taken with my Sony a6000, the first Sony I have used. The lens used was my Olympus 35mm from the 1980s.
