Black and White Photo Challenge: Nature

According to Sonel, ‘Black and White Photography has it’s own composition, texture, light/shadow and even the tonal qualities become more obvious when there is no colour present.  It really let’s the viewer appreciate the image more and there’s a certain nuance to them and it’s like Ansel Adams said : “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.” ‘

She has created a new challenge to showcase monochrome work so I thought I’d support her by joining in. My photo is of the underside of a Gunnera leaf, big enough to shelter beneath from the rain and originally shot in the greenest green.
