I've been practicing a lot with monochrome lately.  It's a lot harder than one might imagine.   I think one must have an idea of what she hopes to accomplish before she starts.  I went out at twilight the other night.  I did some in colour and some in monochrome.

I wished I had got the picture before all the birds were gone.  They were just thick over the top of the trees.  I got a few, anyway.  It's something I hope to get better at.
