I was not totally happy with my first attempt at monochromatic so decided to have another look through my photos and these are what I found…
All lovely. The first one looks familiar, is that the Smokies?
The mountains are the Snowy Mountains in Australia. and they are beautiful in that light.
They are. The photo looks very like some we took of the Smokies a few years ago – same blue, rolling hills.
I love that atmospheric look. Have you posted any of your Smoky Mountains?
Checked back – it was 2011 and they don’t seem to have made the cut.
I bet it feels like yesterday.
Yes – where do the years go?
These are very nice
Thanks for leaving a comment Merilee
Oh, yes, those layers of blue hills is very definitely an excellent monochromatic shot.
Thanks Jude, they are the Snowy Mountains.
A very beautiful region. I have some pre-digital photos of a couple of days there – must scan a couple of lake reflections.
It certainly is a lovely area, but I don’t think we would ever go there in winter, too cold…
Good for skiing though! I was there in late summer almost twenty years ago and went up the chair-lift to the top at Thredbo where it is the closest access point to Mount Kosciuszko.. The bobsled run looked like fun too.
Only place for skiing…It is stunning up there. We went through early summer a couple of years after a really bad bush fire had devastated all the bush.
Well I thought your train was good but these are cool too, love the blue hills!
I think these ones are more in keeping with the theme. Even though they do say a “pop” of colour can be included.
What a collection. Mountains and bird are my favourites – must be feeling subtle today. I’m glad you did a second post, although the first one was a beauty too.
Thanks Meg, the bird is my favourite, I just had to find it!!! It has had no manipulation at all it was an overcast day, no blue sky, and I nearly didn’t bother to take it, but I’m so glad I did, it is one of my favourites.
A lovely selection Pauline.
lovely pictures! 🙂
From the aspect of photography the reflecting disturbed water is fascinating. It grabs our attention and raises questions….what is the whirlpool like disturbance? And the crispness of the water has a crystal effect. Really a memorable photo. I like the others, but also can see the point of a splash of conflicting color. It gives more life. Interesting to see the collection with their similarities and differences. Educational. Thanks.
Lovely and interesting reply Eileen. Actually Jack threw a stone in so I could capture that effect. I’m pleased you like it. Photography is certainly an absorbing hobby.
The water in the second photo looks like it’s made of metal – well done!
It was an overcast sort of a day and very windy, but I liked the light for photography
