Monochrome Monday

Monochrome Monday: 13th April 2020

Monochrome Monday travels back to southern Cheshire in the mid 1980s and some experiments with black and white infrared film. Another test of copying black and white negatives.

These are Silver Birch trees and Bracken growing on a section of Maiden Castle, an Iron Age hill fort on top of Bickerton Hill in southern Cheshire, England.

Throwback Thursday

Silver Birch Trees in Snow

Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire, England in the mid 1990s.

More specifically, Bickerton Hill, Cheshire after a snowfall. In this photo I am looking down onto Silver Birch trees at the base of a section of the hill.

Throwback Thursday: Odd One Out

Throwback Thursday travels back to Cheshire, England in the 1990s.

I had gone to Bickerton Hill, Cheshire looking for wildlife and any early autumn colour. I noticed the blue green of a solitary conifer amongst a sea of green Silver Birch trees and used a telephoto lens to pick the conifer out.

Cee's Fun Foto Challenge

Trails in the snow

The new Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge is Walks, Trails, Sidewalks.

Not the most appropriate challenge for someone currently stuck in a hospital bed but I can’t resist a challenge.

I had a few ideas but in the end went with my first one. I can’t explain why the snow didn’t stick to the trails through the trees. As the trails are sand maybe the sand was to damp or to warm.
