For some reason Spain has presented me with the most variety of ‘one colour’ shots.
Golden monochrome: the brass incense burner in Santiago de Compostela’s cathedral is bathed in golden light.
Blue monochrome: the grape harvest in La Rioja was in full swing when we were there in October and the towns were aromatic with the smell of crushed grapes.
Dark red monochrome: hard decision here – do I go for a shot of the red-tiled roofs? Or perhaps a pitcher of Sangria? or maybe one of a variety of hard sausages for sale in the market in Ribadesella?
White monochrome: mushrooms for sale in Santiago de Compostela. Mushroom season was also in full swing in October and people were all over the place carrying little baskets of hand-picked mushrooms destined for someone’s delicious dinner.Green monochrome: I already did a post on Spanish monochromes featuring the obvious all-green monochromes – after all, we were travelling along the ‘Costa Verde’ (Green Coast). Here’s another green shot I missed in that post, a chestnut grove in the Ribeira Sacra.
Grey monochromes: Plus I added the intensely grey monochromes found in the mountains, the shoreline and the ancient stone walls of many churches. Here’s yet another, the monastery in the Ribeira Sacra (Sacred Shore).
Now somebody needs to put up a ‘Green & Grey’ challenge for the multitude shots I have that combine green and grey!
