Winter Whites, Life in Colour June

As  I sit here on a wet winter Saturday, the view out the window is almost a white-out as the clouds are sitting low against  a very grey sea.  The ducks are ducking their heads under to snatch some duckweed.. Their movement is noticeable only in the ripples they create in the otherwise calm waters.

Tiny waves are gently lapping the beach forming tidal patterns at the water’s edge.  Currents show as a deeper silver on the still waters. The tidal flow is creeping quietly up the gravel beach, surrounding the huge driftwood log that has been stranded since being cast ashore in the last storm. It now serves a a roosting perch for cormorants as they dry their wings and digest the fish they dived under the waves to catch.

It must be time to post some silver and white images for Life in Colour – June.

I will start with some  seascapes and seagulls in silver. 

There are mountains of mountain images in my April/May archives – here are but a few with that white stuff called snow and a scattering of clouds.

And there were the frosty foggy finds… 

And I still love to capture splashes of white

I may yet find more silver or white before the end of June.

SundayStills – Some of my Best Black & White Photos

I love black and white photography and I try to aim for the moon. I look for compositions and light that works well for the genre. Here are my offerings.


“Aim for the moon and even if you miss you will land amongst the stars”


Lighting in the landscape  sets the scene for stunning scenery be it stormy or calm waters or even over the top geography of rural roads.

Flowers and vegetables have interesting textures that often work well in black and white.


Sculpted statues are some of my favourite subjects to capture in black and white.
