Weekly Photo Challenge: Monochromatic


This week’s WordPress Photo Challenge relates to monochromatic photos.

“In a monochromatic image, a distinct point of focus, or focal point, is also a necessity. Great photographs immediately engage a viewerโ€™s eye and attention, and especially in images where the colors tend to bleed together, the photographer needs to choose the focus with intention.”

With this photo from Bribie Island (Australia) I believe I have achieved that need to engage a viewer’s eye and attention. ย Those trees will eventually be swallowed up by the incoming tide.

In response to some questions about these trees, I’ve added a photo showing what it looks like when the tide has gone out. Though they look like mangrove trees, they are in open sea water, so I’m unsure. When the tide comes in, they disappear.

  2. This photo is counter intuitive for me. It looks at first glance like the African Veldt flooded?! How could this be?
    When I read it was Briby Island I was surprised. Are these mangrove trees?
    Kim you have a unique perspective. I know we all do but yours is the gift of making me look twice, reconsider what I am seeing, re-appreciate everyday beauty. Thank you.

    • I don’t know what kind of trees they are — they do look like mangroves, but these are out in open sea water, on a rocky outcrop. If you know anything about the area, you’ll know that when the tide goes out, a lot of mud and rocks are exposed.
      Thank you for your kind comments. I love photography — and I seem to have as good eye for it. A passionate hobby. ๐Ÿ™‚
