Cee’s Black and White: Trees

This week’s topic on Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge is Trees.

A new angle on a palm tree, dwarfed, waiting for the coconut to fall. This isn’t a coconut tree so that was highly unlikely, just as well.

Lying down on a bench next to the beach, looking up at these lofty fronds. Still no coconuts, just as well.

      These particular photos make good black and white photos due to the texture of the fronds. I’m still new to black and white photography. Thank you for your compliment, I greatly appreciate it :-).

      Thanks Cee! I’ve been to my friend’s place in Namibia a number of times, but it was only during the last visit that I went for a walk and saw the tree from that angle for the first time.
