Two Ring-billed Gulls

Or, as an alternative title, Mostly Grey with a Splash of Yellow.

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

I decided to do a selective colour treatment of a mostly black and white species. These two Ring-billed Gulls are standing on a dark gray granite boulder with a gray Lake Huron in the background. I hardly needed to do the selective colour treatment.

Monochrome Monday: 23rd November 2020

Monochrome Monday travels back a few days to a walk around the neighborhood.

Most of the leaves have been off the trees for weeks in this part of Ontario so when I spotted a solitary Maple leaf a selective colour treatment came to mind.

Splashes and Colour

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: A Splash of Colour prompt.

I initially went with a splash of colour before going with splashes in colour.

Monochrome Monday: 15th June 2020

Monochrome Monday travels back to Saskatchewan in the mid 1990s and an inquisitive male American Goldfinch.

I was photographing a small group of American Goldfinches feeding on weed seeds in a ditch when I noticed this male peeking around the fence post at me. The fence post is an old railroad tie (or sleeper to the British) that was splitting. So in the past someone had nailed an old Saskatchewan license plate across the split to hold it together.

Monochrome Birds

This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: It’s All About Nature.

I started thinking about some of the black and/or white species I have photographed over the years. Then, because I’ve been on a bit of a selective colour kick recently I considered monochrome species that have a splash of colour.

So here’s two different species in the spring, one in the U.K. and one in Canada.
