Up until a few minutes ago I had absolutely nothing for this week’s challenge. Over the Easter break we went to the Lismore area via Ballina and surrounds. We even went over the Richmond River on a car ferry that runs from Burns Point over to South Ballina. It was a miserable weekend weatherwise with a lot of cloud and not of the interesting kind. Coming back from the beach we spotted this Eastern Osprey (I think) sitting in a tree. I wished the reeds were not in the way blowing around in the wind obscuring its face somewhat but short of mowing the grass and frightening off the bird I had to make the best of it.
I post processed in Lightroom and changed it to black and white… I’ve put in the coloured version for your perusal. I don’t mind it in black and white but equally its okay in colour as well. Usually when I put up a post for MM its because the photo, I feel, is much better in monochrome so will be interested to see what you think?
Monochrome Madness is run by Leanne Cole every Wednesday. Please go to the link here for more black and white photos.
