In black & white

Back to my Cameron's Trail...

I recently took a trip to Cameron Highlands, one of Malaysia's popular hill resorts. Situated about a four-hour drive from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur, Cameron's is known for its tea plantations, strawberries, vegetable farms and variety of flowers!

Due to its elevation of about 800 - 1700m above sea level, the average temperature here ranges between 23 - 18°C... nice, huh?!

Hence, making it a haven for photography hobbyists, offering lots of room for experiments... of the photographic kind of course!

So, today, we are turning some of my randomly shot subjects (mostly flowers) into black and white!

Imagine if you will ~ moody, stark, classic images (I try)
Today I promise to talk less and let you enjoy more!
Here we go...


We visited the lavender farm
which carried lots of other types of flowers too
That helped!


A whole almost-field of daisies!


Windmills of your mind
I found these catching the wind at a cafe serving strawberry sundaes and lavender cakes!
Not bad view of the surroundings from there too...


The fish, I mean
Yin and Yang pose
Very zen too


Moody and stark attempt #1
(or #2 if you count the first shot above)


And another...
moody and stark, I mean
Attempt #3

After that nature's work of art....
Here is what I call, "The Mad Professor"
(and his bevy of equally mad students!)
What can I say,
Nature comes in many shapes and forms
All to be appreciated fairly!


And finally
Last but not least
Attempt #4 of stark and moody!
Hope you enjoyed this black and white journey with me

Hi @ackhoo ! Great photos! I love how photos are turned into black and white.

Thank you very much, @ssygmr!

You're welcome! :)

Ideal at higher altitude to enjoy cooler climate, an excellent time photographing outdoors. Flowers ever changing showing detail in black and white, nice share @ackhoo

Yessss! It was wonderful being in cooler weather. We were due there again right now actually, but got reined in by the latest stage of lockdown! Sighhh... Well, soon, we're hoping. Meanwhile, I'm gonna have more (in colour) to show... :) Many thanks, @joanstewart

Sorry to hear you back under lockdowns, actually I do not think they help in anyway, we thrive in sunshine and fresh air.

This side still mask wearing when leaving the home, curfew imposed from midnight to four in the morning.

Look forward to seeing in colour as well, all though I always feel black and white gives more detail in many instances.

Sensational black and white again we must call you the "Mono Queen" you are just so good at this 👍

Awwww, that's too kind! Thank you, @bigsambucca!

It is my great pleasure to honor you as the "Mono Queen" 👍😊
