garden photography: monochrome

In February I am looking for Monochrome

(black and white or tones of one colour. Look for texture, shape and patterns. The subject matter is entirely up to you, but should be loosely garden related.)


Lysichiton camschatcensis or Asian skunk cabage – I was attracted to this grouping because of the unusual green and white colouration with the ovate white spathe tinged with green surrounding the club-like dark green spadix. No processing involved.

L. camtschatcensis is a clump-forming herbaceous perennial with fragrant, pure white, arum-like flowers 30cm in height in early spring, followed by broad oval leaves to 90cm in length

  1. This is a beauty Jude. So many glorious shapes and such delicate venation. And then the language, all knew to me. I was fumbling to name the parts, thinking I couldn’t access the words I needed when in reality I didn’t have the words!

  5. I love all shade pants – I think these are happy in shade, aren’t they?

    I tried converting my shots to B&W but it really wasn’t working, so I kept their colour. Together there is more than one colour, but each picture focuses on a different shade so I hope I’m in the spirit of the challenge.

    Is ‘the earth laughs in flowers’ your tagline?
