Monochrome Monday 6-48

Is it fair, to show blossoms in monochrome now when they finally start blooming and end the winter? Last week, we had two wonderful sunny and quite warm days (approx. 14-15°C). Birds are singing everywhere. It’s their mating season and they try to attract a partner. The buds are growing on the trees and bushes, ready to break up soon to give free the leaves and the petals. Just like the blossom of the star magnolia in the image above. In my opinion, the image works well in monochrome because of the naturally white petals and the backlit situation in the scene. What do you think? I’m looking forward to your opinion. Just type it in the comment box below.

Take care!

Monochrome Monday 6-47

This is another image taken during my winter trip to northern Norway in February/March 2016. I’m standing at the ferry port of Olderdalen and looking over to the other side of the Lyngefjord. You can see a tiny boat on the fjord in some distance. It’s a very big ferry. Even a couple of lorries are fitting in the ferry beside passenger cars. The distance to the mountain range is approximately 9 km. So, it gives you kind of a scale.

Take care!
