Throwback Thursday: wet

This is my contribution to The Lens-Artists challenge. This week Tina Shell challenged us with the topic “All Wet”. I’m quite late with my response.

I met these wet cranes last fall when I was heading home. Suddenly there were hundreds of them in the fields all wet from the constant rain.

Take care!

Monochrome Madness 4-15

This time, we have another themed MMC: “season”

Usually, when thinking of “season”, I think of the seasons of the year first. Depending of the region, you’re living in, they are slightly different. While having no seasons in equatorial areas, the seasons of the northern and the southern hemisphere are opposite to each other. So, Leanne asked for an image not showing winter or summer.

Here in Germany, we have a so-called 5th season in some regions: For Carnival (or Mardi Grass in French) colourful processions are organised to celebrate the start of the Lenten season during the last 40 days until Easter. But, showing monochrome images of colorful processions is not a good idea in my opinion.

Thus, I’ve chosen an image of a wheat field, nearly ripe for harvesting. Harvest season has started.

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

I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are  published in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.

Take care!

Daily Prompt: Singular Sensation

This lonely tree, I found in Brittany, is my contribution to todays assignment at “The daily Prompt” called singular sensation.

I liked the unique shape of this tree and the fact to be located alone, surrounded by grain and a few lower bushes. So, it’s not only its uniqueness, that made me choose this photo. Also the  fact, that it’s standing alone  in the fields gave me the idea to choose it.
