For this week’s post on Monochromia, I wanted to show sunlight … it seems as if we haven’t seen alot of that this summer.
It truly was a beautiful evening.
Have you visited Monochromia yet? Please do so soon and check out the work of photographers from around the world!
Love those lines!
Thanks so much, Chuck! So glad to have you visit me here:-)
That first one is wonderful! You have such a great eye for cropping photos so that we see what you want us to see. Love it that you share your Monochromia posts here too.
Thanks for both of those thoughts! I don’t have quite the eye for seeing how a subject will look in B&W, but I’m learning!
Wonderful lines, light and shadow! I just love a pasture fence, looks like such beautiful countryside!
Thank you! I’m lucky to live where these scenes are fairly commonplace!
Great photos–The fences make wonderful monochrome pictures.
Thanks Sheryl! I’m learning alot about B&W photography … and thankfully share a blog with some really great photographers!
I love both these images Laurie 🙂 They each share your unique perspective and and are wonderful shots.
Thanks Joe! I’ve been thinking about you (okay, and worrying just a smidge!). Hope you are well!
Lovely sun splashed lines
Sunsplashed … perfect term! I loved the way the sun was hitting the fence in dapples of light. Thanks!
Both winners. Very good eye, Laurie.
Thanks so much, Bruce.
Great post! Get it?. . . fence . . .post . . .;)
Love it and thanks for the humor at the end (almost) of a long day!
Nice work LB, the shadows on the posts are like ribbons. Like a sunshine celebration. The whole scene is a really beautiful property. The fencing looks pristine and even mowed on the shoulder. Must be very attentive folks living there. I always admire rolling hills and heady trees in the country, it’s so bucolic. Out on the prairies here, it’s so flat. xo ❤
I’m glad I was able to share some hills for you to view, Prairie Gal!
There are usually two or three horses contendely munching around this pasture … not sure where they were today.
Both are wonderful images, Laurie! The shadows and angles in the first keep my eye jumping around the photo to take it all in. But (and I say this because you asked over on Monochromia), I really do like the second image a bit better. Instead of jumping from post to post, my eye just smoothly roams along the leading line of the fence to the background to yet more curving fences. And the puffy white clouds certainly do speak to a bright blue sky. I had an easier time picturing this one in the terms you described. Seems like a picture perfect day 😀
Yes, your thoughts are similar to mine! It’s funny … initially I thought the first was the better and went with it, but as I continued to think on it, I came to like the second better. Thanks so much for checking out both, here and on Monochromia!
Nicely done! The gentle curve of the fence away from the viewer in the second photo is particularly appealing.
Thank you! Everytime I pass this fence (once a month for an appointment), I have to get out and shoot it. You are so right … it’s all about that curve.
