This week finds me back in the fold of Monochrome Madness at long last. I have had a great break but now back to work.

Banora wetlands BWMy photo comes from Banora Point where I live.  I have called it Banora Wetlands but really its a paddock that, after a good deal of rain, which we had over Christmas, fills up like a lake.  I guess its a flood plain if you like and as I drive past on some occasions I always think Id like to take a picture of that at dawn.

So I had the opportunity to go along with a friend, who made me get up and go as I had promised.  We got through the fence (hmm trespassing?) and I walked further into the property squelching as I went but oblivious at the time to my wet feet.  Its at this stage I give a big thanks to Keens footwear for my hybrid shoes that allows me to feel guiltless as I walk through mud and water but with protected feet at the same time.

Anyway there was not much wildlife at this time of the morning sadly but later in the day I was told that the horses were out in the water running around and that was what I was hoping for at sunrise but maybe next time……

  1. Absolutely lovely Karen. I can hear the birds and smell the water. You have such a great eye for a photo. Looks good in monochrome. My favourite is the third shot, just something about the taller trees on the left and the grass at the front makes it speak to me.

  4. What a shame you missed the horses but we are patient and know you will be there at the right time one day!
    The last photo is amazing, it has a lot of feeling in it and I was curious about that lovely soft glow on the trees – is it the sun coming up?


  5. Beautiful misty, smoky, muted tones and lovely light. Each photo looks so tranquil.
