Monochrome Madness – Waterfalls moving


After the waterfall on the hike on Monday I thought it might be nice to show a selection of waterfalls in monochrome.

I do really think this subject suits monochrome a lot. Maybe I should have left this to be one of my themes. Oh well, here it is now.

I don’t really want to say much today about these as I think they speak for themselves. Which one do you like the most?

The next theme is being hosted by Dawn and she has chosen “roads, lanes, and pathways”.  It will be next week.

  1. Fifth one really has horror movie vibes. Like some lunatic chasing you have to jump and looking back up you can’t see him because he is the JASON. It is just my imagination I hope😅

    1. Yeah, I think it might just be you, lol. YOu must have an amazing imagination. Thanks for the smile you have put on my face. 😀

  2. The silky smooth appeal of the waterfalls you’ve captured, Leanne, are magical, and even in black and white, you effortlessly captured nature’s beauty and rawness!

    1. You’re so welcome, Leanne!

      Black and white photography is my favourite because of the timeless appeal of moments being frozen in time to highlight the rawness and emotion every photo evokes.

      Alex Smithson 🙂

    2. I have a friend who does all her work in black and white too. I like colour too much, but I like to mix it up and get what you are talking about.

    3. I’m the same here because as much as I love producing photography work in colour, I love producing photography work in black and white, and I love switching up the way I produce photography work because it’s refreshing exploring other fields of photography that I know or want to learn more from.

      Alex Smithson 🙂

    4. That’s so refreshing because everything we produce that shows our continued growth is proof of the hard work we all put in as we’re consistently learning and improving, and your work inspires me to keep pushing myself in the work I create.

      Alex Smithson 🙂

    5. It’s the best feeling because I always look to everyone’s work for inspiration whenever I travel around, and your work is amazing!

      I’ll pop by your website to take a look at more of your incredible work!

      I’ve got tons of photos from London that I cannot wait for you to see over the coming months as I love writing about the places I visit, and it’s refreshing when we all write about the places we visit including the snapshots we create that allow us to immerse ourselves in the moment, and it’s genuinely refreshing!

      Alex Smithson 🙂

    6. That is really nice of you to say Alex. I think we all do that look to see what others do.
      I agree, I lvoe seeing places that I will probably never go to. Thank you Alex. 😀

  3. You’re nearly asking for the impossible, Leanne, to pick a favourite! But, for the uniqueness of the water ripples, Milford is extraordinary.

    1. I think the Milford image has been most people’s favourite, it is a great image if I do say so myself. Thank you Sofia.

    1. Thank you, I like the idea that you take a double take. That was taken from a boat and the water was falling a long way.

  4. I just bought a second hand Leica Q2 monochrome and can’t wait to try it out (it’s still in transit) these are beautiful in black and white

  5. These are wonderful, very dramatic. I shan’t however join you this week as I don’t have that many images, and they’ve all had their 5 minutes of fame already!

    1. Thank you so much Margaret. This is a free week, so you don’t have to post waterfalls, if you want to have a go, do whatever you like for this one.
