A Photo a Week Challenge: Shades of Pink.

This is my contribution to the A Photo a Week Challenge: Shades of Pink.

I decided to go with three photos taken on the Lake Huron shoreline in Southampton, Ontario, Canada.

Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Shadows.

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Shadows.

I decided to go with two images of shadows being cast by trees that are also very different.

Trees and their shadows, Bickerton Hill, Cheshire, England. A film shot from about 25 years ago. Taken with a long telephoto to isolate the trees and shadows as much as possible.

Monochrome trees and shadows.

 

A barcode on the snow. A low winter sun casting long shadows of tree trunks onto snow on the South Bruce Peninsula, Ontario, Canada taken about 18 months ago. This was almost a monochrome image and hardly changed when doing the monochrome conversion.
