Brilliant!

This image, but in black and white, is my contribution to Monochromia today.

Hope you all have something fun planned for the weekend!  I’ll be catching up on chores, checking out your blog posts, watching the Hokies play Carolina, and of course spending a little time on the bike!

    • Hi Pauline! It’s been a great weekend, full of play and work. Hope you were able to do some things that bring you joy!
      I, too, love that green color. I didn’t even process it … that is the color as Mother Nature made it!

  1. “checking out your blog posts, watching the Hokies play Carolina, and of course spending a little time on the bike!” sounds good to me, especially the last bit:)

  2. There’s so much to say about this one. What a beauty of a catch of light and curves. The movement of the branch into the leaf is nothing short of sensual. And I just love their shadow on the leaf below. This one is brilliant.

    • Thanks so much Crystal! Sometimes they just come out of the camera almost perfectly!
      Today’s shots, taken while riding, not so much. Ah well … next time!

  3. I started at Monochromatic and came back here to see it in colour. I’m enjoying both but do fine I gravitate to the colour one more. The golden hour just needs colour I think, it just makes me more glad for the day. Go Hokies ! (ha) xo

    • The Hokies won!! YAY!
      and it was a beautiful weekend … football, hot dogs and s’mores around the fire, lots of cooking with basil, and a little time on the bike. The only thing that wasn’t good was the photos I took along the way today … so thankfully, the photo in this post was lovely, right out of the camera!

  4. You have a great eye. After the color shot with the light suing on the green, I didn’t wanton look at anything else!

  5. Well, now you’ve done it. I can’t decide which one I like better. Guess I’ll “like” both here and on Monochromia. But don’t expect another comment over there, too. I’m a man of few words!

    • I love to hear that you enjoy the blog, Deborah. Thank you!
      Very little post processing was done on the green image. It really is as nature made it!

Because Boomdee dared me: Lay a little sugar on me :-)
