I took these photos of my local scenery for Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Black & White, using the Nokia Lumia 530 windows phone. Turned B&W in IrfanView, scaled down but not cropped. Clicking will open a larger image in a new window.
Sally has a lovely pair of B&W photo montages this week. Using photographs of the same subject over different time periods and then combining them in interesting ways is an exciting idea. Sally’s have a wonderful abstract feel.
These first photos overlook the farm next door to our place. I don’t know how much rain we had recently because I’ve forgotten to empty the rain gauge. When I’ve looked at it from a distance, I had been fooled by a reddish stain at around the lower end where old water sat for ages. Only after we had a huge downpour did I discover that the gauge was full. So I know we had at least 5 inches this winter. It may well have some possum piss in it, too. 🙂
These last two images look back towards town. It is a very cold day, today the 24th, beginning with fog and drizzle. Almost 1:30pm before getting a glimpse of the sun and the temperature is almost 7 C.
I hope you are having a great weekend. Thanks for reading. 🙂
