Put out to pasture for the day, a horse hovers near the barn gate–possibly looking for a respite from the New Hampshire winter’s chill. This is my photo for this week’s challenge. To see all of the beautiful monochromes, go to Leanne Cole’s Blog.
Sawn Rocks, in New South Wales, Australia, is an example of a volcanic rock formation called “organ-piping”–it’s easy to see why. On our way to see this formation, a mishap occurred and I’ll share with you the following quote from my travel journal: “Sad day. On our way to Mt. Kaputar NP, I accidentally locked the car key in the boot. The car was unlocked, but the inside latch wouldn’t work. We ended up being towed by a guy named Brian to a garage in Murrurrundi owned by a guy named Ashley. It took a full 24 hours to get the key out and we ended up staying across the street from the garage at a trucker hotel instead of Craigton Resort at the NP.”
All was well in the end and I even managed to take this shot on our abbreviated visit to the park. We had schedules to keep!
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.
A substantial amount of snow fell on this suburban open space area in central Colorado, but after a couple of days the weather warmed up and it all melted! It was pretty while it lasted. To see all of this week’s monochrome images, go to Leanne Cole’s blog.
