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.)


My final offering is a low key edit of a pure white arum lily. Because this flower was growing in a very shady spot it was fairly easy to remove any background distractions so as to focus purely on the flowing shape of the flower.

If you would like to join in with Garden Photography then please take a look at my Garden Photography Page. No complicated rules 🙂

  • Create your own post and title it FebruaryMonochrome
  • Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
  • Add the tag “GardenChallenge” so everyone can find the posts easily in the WP Reader
  • Get your post in by the end of the month, as the new theme comes out on the first Sunday in March.
  • Please visit the sites linked in the comments to see what others are posting.

This is the last week for showing me your monochromatic images. Next week I am looking for wildlife in the garden. Thanks to everyone who joined in with the monochrome challenge, it has been wonderful to see how you interpreted this somewhat difficult challenge and I appreciate all your entries and all the comments left on mine.

(and I am linking this particular post to Paula’s Black and White Sunday, which this week comes from guest blogger Sue Judd with the brief of ‘negative space’. Please take a look.)

  1. Lovely shot and the black background is perfect for it. I have a friend who is a master of flower photography and she carries around a piece of black velvet and some black cardboard for her shots, which are always wonderful. Great job with this one.

  2. Such a tactile photo – you’ve captured the rich feel of the flower as well as its shapes.

    (A quick question. Do you use an app to blog on your tablet? Blogsy has gone defunct, at the same time as I bought my mini iPad oddly.)

  3. I thought I was psychic for a while there because the first thing I thought when I looked at this was ‘Sue’s negative space’ 🙂 It looks a little spooky to me. Must be Sue’s influence 🙂 Clever and artistic.

  4. Beautiful work, Jude. It’s worth a frame. Now the girls are busy thinking about a weightless black something for future shots.
    Warm greetings from the Rhine Valley,
