Monochrome Madness 4-51

It’s still coupling season for the grey seals. So, this big male tries to convince the smaller female below him to give him a try 🙂 Despite this looks like a fight, it wasn’t.

This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole for more than four years now. Look at here site on Wednesday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.

Monochrome Madness 4-40

I took this image while on Helgoland the week before last.

Despite having already so many images from here. I really love the small lighthouse standing on the beach of the small island beside Helgoland. I love, how it oversees the dunes, the beach and and see. I have many images from my trips which this lighthouse as a part of the image. Every single image is different because of different weather conditions. Here we have some drama in the clouds. Another image has a sunny beach. These changing conditions make the coastal areas so interesting for me from a photographers point of view.

Monochrome Madness 2-08

mm08-600_2116-t_w

As I wrote in my last posts, spring has come. Almost two weeks with beautiful weather have past and the mid-term forecast isn’t that bad. The sun brings people to become more active outside again. Tennis courts are being prepared for the summer time, the first people are using the golf courts, people start again with motor-biking, jogging, nordic walking and biking.

Unfortunately I live about 300 km from the coast (Belgium 290, Netherlands 260, Germany 350, 400 northern France  all as the crow flies). So I picked this photo, taken last year at the Belgium coast, for this weeks Monochrome Madness by Leanne Cole.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand

dsc_1344-ec_wAt “The Daily Post” they asked for this weeks “Photo Challenge” for photos with the wow factor. Actually, there are many photos on my computer and online as well. I guess, to pick a photo for this competition, it’d would be the easiest way, to look on my walls. Some of my best photos are hanging framed on my walls. But, there are some still only on my computer or here in my blog.

So, I picked a photo taken at my trip to a dreamy island. An island in the sun!
