Black and White Wood (and a couple of birds)


Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge – Wood

I recently travelled to the UK – to renew my passport, which is another story entirely – and not only did I get my entire family together for our first Christmas in 10 years but I was also lucky enough to experience my first proper snow.

On Boxing Day we went for a walk in the hills around Glossop – the views were breathtaking!

I don’t know if this first picture qualifies as true black and white since I took it in full colour but I love the effect of the white snow on the black tree trunks.

A few days after returning home I spotted this eagle perched in the dead tree above our bedroom:

And then a couple of days later we saw this Fish Eagle perched on a tree on the banks of the Zambezi River:
