Monochrome Madness 2 -3

This week Monochrome Madness, hosted by Leanne Cole, takes me to Wollongong.  I was there for my cousins 80th birthday celebration which was lovely and great to catch up with a lot of relative, a few that I haven’t seen for a very long time.

Whilst there the weather wasn’t so kind but I did manage to get a sunset over Lake Illawara with some people fishing off a pier.  As I love piers this was a good thing for me to find.  There wasn’t much in the sunset in the way of colour but the rays shining down looked glorious.  I opted for a black and white version which I quite liked and was more striking, I think, than if I had left it in colour.  lake-illawara-BW

  2. It’s a striking photo! My apologies for using the same word as Sue, but when I enlarged it, that’s what popped into my mind. You caught the rays perfectly and the cloud formation intrigued me.

  4. Striking is a good description – beautiful and gorgeous are others. 🙂 I particularly like the figures at the end of the pier that you can see when you enlarge the image. It’s like they’re bathing in the sun’ s light!


  5. I love the light pouring down and the reflection works so well in mono!!
