2016-02-01: Monochrome Monday

I wanted to do something a bit different for this monochrome Monday, so I edited this photo in a very stylized manner, hoping to be reminiscent of a painting.

Let me know what you think.

Happy Monday!

As it turns out, I didn’t end up liking a single photo I took last week, so instead, I edited one from the archives that I was looking at over the weekend.

An early morning rhino family photo. I love the long shadow along the body of the one on the right; it mimics the shape of the horn beautifully.

If the day ends in Y, it’s a day that I will happily edit some elephant photos – so that’s what I’ve done 🙂

I hope you enjoy, and have a wonderful evening.

I just can’t resist the look on this elephant’s face as he reaches up for the perfect branch to chew on.

One of my dream wildlife sightings / photo opportunity was to see a leopard in a tree.  I’m sure I mentioned it before, but it happened in what I felt was an unlikely place, the Okavango Delta.

I was looking through photos with my Mom yesterday and came across these after not having seen them for awhile, and I thought they would be great to edit in black and white.  I still have a lot more shots to get through 🙂
