I had been standing on the dock in Colpoy’s Bay photographing the sunrise when I turned around and saw the reflection of the tree being distorted by the ripples.
This image for Monochrome Monday was taken on a walk around the neighborhood last week.
The original was monochromatic before doing the conversion but I tried to bring out the imprints in the snow when doing the conversion. They were formed by ice from the overhead branches falling into the snow.
Monochrome Monday travels back to a walk around the neighborhood on Boxing Day.
I thought these tree roots looked slightly creepy in monochrome.
This is contribution for day two of Becky’s January Squares: Light photo challenge.
Some sidelighting throwing shadows of tree trunks across the snow while a fallen branch sticks out of the snow.
This is my contribution to Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Crooked and Squiggly Lines.
I had the prompt in mind when I went for a couple of walks with a camera over the past few days.
Some crooked tree bark.
Some squiggly tree roots.
This is my contribution to the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge: Nostalgic.
Here’s a small selection of places, species or things that I am nostalgic about.
Having moved to Canada in the late 1990s I still miss the European Robin. They were usually real characters. I had one that would land on the door mirror of the car as soon as I parked. It knew that there was a good chance of something to eat. Here’s one having a bath in Cheshire, England.
Motorcycles in fog from Snowdonia in North Wales in 1981. This makes me nostalgic for a couple of reasons. Firstly, in those days I would strap a camera bag on the back of a motorcycle and take off across the country or Europe. Secondly, the shot was taken with Ilford XP1, I was one of the field testers prior to its launch. In those days I shot as much black and white film as colour. I no longer have the ability to “see” in black and white the way I could in the days of shooting film.
In the late 1990s I was living in central Saskatchewan, Canada. Each autumn large numbers of Snow Geese would congregate on their way south for the winter. In this photo a flock is taking off from part of the Last Mountain Lake National Wildlife Area. The sight and sound of the birds taking flight is something I hope I never forget.
A hoarfrost covered Oak tree in Cheshire, England in the early 1980s. This is nostalgia about the simplicity of photography in those days. A manual focus camera and a couple of lenses. A few years later I was carrying a backpack for the various cameras and lenses.
