Monochrome Wednesday – Tree in water


This weeks photo for Monochrome Wednesday is a little different to what I normally show. While it is a tree in water, it has been processed in a way which is not what I normally do.

Monochrome Wednesday – Tree in water

When I was looking for a photo for today, I did consider doing a flower. Then again, I thought it might be nice to find something else. As I was looking through my archives I found the following.

I had worked on the photo, but never published it anywhere, which was unusual for me. Perhaps it was because when I first did it, I didn’t really like it. It might have been that it is such a different look to what I normally do as well.

The photo was taken in 2015 on a very foggy day to Bonnie Doon. It is at the top of Lake Eildon. There are various places around the lake where you can find trees that had started to grow when the lake was empty in the last drought. Bonnie Doon is one of those. No idea if the trees are still alive now.

Fog can be difficult for me because you often can’t make really dark images from them. No idea what the thought process was behind this one. Sorry, but after three years, it is hard for me to remember.

It is definitely a high key image. I think that is what they call them. There is a lot of contrast. Not sure how I feel about it, but it was a fun find. I am fairly certain that it isn’t a look that I will be trying to replicate too often.


Joining in

It would be great if you would like to participate, especially if you are enjoying the monochrome challenge again. If you want to contribute there is a Facebook groupTPM Photos which you can join and share your images. Of course, if you are blogging no reason why you can’t post your own. I like this challenge and it is nice to be thinking in monochrome again.

  1. I think that the starkness of the tree and the mist in the background provide a great other-worldly feel that is emphasised much more by being in Black & White. Well chosen.
