Black and White – Part 2

With this weeks Theme of Black And white I tried to find images that have texture ..I love the complex simplicity of Black and white and how it strips photos of space and time …let us focus on the objects and lets the simple textures come to the front using just light and dark shades …

Back to the roots of photography before colour came about ..

In strong contrast to last weeks theme I did a search of my photo library and discovered I that had upward of 500 photos that relate to sunsets …so the problem this week was finding 5 from 500 ..not an easy task …but I think these images are the best of the best for now ….

This weeks images cover three different countries and two-time zones but have one thing in common ..colourful sunsets.

The first three photos are all from Thailand ..an amazing place with beautiful beaches, friendly people, spicy food, cold beer and an abundance of SUN…making for some great sun downers and some amazing photo opituinities..The first photo is krabi beach as the day ends the long tail boats head back to the harbour …the second photo is of ko lanta island and a local child enjoying the last rays of the day..the third photo is the view from the Banyan Tree Hotel in Bangkok ..I was enjoying a my last Thai sunset with my last Thai beer on my last night in Thailand…at their amazing roof top bar.

Photo number Four is a panorama of South end on Sea beach on my first Motorcycle day Trip adventure …

Photo Number five is my first trip to Cork and to Ireland to visit some dear friends we enjoyed some cold Guinness and watched the surfers catch the last waves of the day as the light faded and turned the sky the most amazing colours

So please ….sit down and kick back with your sundower drink of choice and enjoy the photos…
