The badlands around the world come in many shapes and colors, but have in common the difficulty they present to any who would like to pass through them. I chose this image for this week’s challenge, which includes a collection of entries posted each week by Leanne Cole. To see all of this week’s entries go to Leanne’s blog.
The Petrel is an old whaling ship grounded on South Georgia Island in the Southern Ocean. Nearby in the settlement of Grytviken are a the remains of a former British whaling station and the grave of explorer Ernest Shackleton, barely visible in the background. This image is my contribution to today’s boat-themed challenge hosted by Leanne Cole. To see all of the other sea-going vessels processed in monochrome go to Leanne’s blog.

There is a chill in the air and leaves are beginning to fall along the path of a city walk in Frankfurt, Germany. Snug and secure beneath the arbor that still remains, it is a good day for a stroll. This is my image for this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge hosted by Leanne Cole. To see all the beautiful entries in today’s challenge post, click over to Leanne’s blog.

Aside from serving as a setting for spooky fiction and a symbol of the American bucolic past, a covered bridge enjoyed a longer life because the exterior protected the wooden timbers of the passageway from the effects of the sun and inclement weather. This is one of many historic bridges in the New England region of the United States. To see all the other monochrome images in today’s challenge, go to Leanne Cole’s blog.
The spot behind the curtain is snug and secure. Standing under the rock crevice listening to the water wash down from above gives feeling of quiet and separation from everything on the other side.
