04.14.2015 Tonality Tuesday

Back to work today after a gorgeous weekend.  Although it may shower a little this morning, the temperature stayed up in the 50s overnight and it will be another comfortable day.  I’m starting to believe.  🙂

I missed Monochrome Monday, so I dub this Tonality Tuesday.  Here’s another from the archives.

White-Trillium-BandW-042911-800White Trillium aka White Wakerobin (Trillium grandiflorum).

Have a nice Tuesday, everyone.

  1. Beautiful shot … appropriate in monochrome … and just the right light.

    Beautiful. Perfect. Remember those contests? I think this one deserves to be an entry. (And what a name! “White Wakerobin” is as evocative of spring as can be.)


    • I like your choice of words, Linda. Thanks!.
      Nope…I don’t remember them. Maybe a memory prompt will assist. I tried Googling a contest with those words but didn’t find what I thought you would be referring to.
      I’ve always just said trillium but am becoming more enamored with wakerobin.


  3. I am duly impressed with Ms Trillie Florum. Gorgeous shot in B&W.

  4. That’s an excellent term you’ve coined: tonality Tuesday. All those subtle shades of gray in your photograph (at least fifty, no doubt) will keep anyone from getting hot and bothered and accusing you of being visually tone-deaf.

    • Thank you, Eduardo. No, this was outdoors in an arboretum, but shaded. I never pick wildflowers, so all the light is natural although I do sometimes use diffusers and reflectors as well as adjusting contrasts etc to my taste in Photoshop.

    I’m with Steve–Tonality Tuesday could catch on very easily!
