Color or Monochrome - Tree Stumps and Sunrise

Color or Monochrome - Tree Stumps and more

Color or Monochrome
Tree Stumps and Sunrise

At first I wanted to make a #Monomad post, but then I thought that if I only post every two weeks at the moment, I should at least add some more color to the post about two monochrome dead trees.
So I have added some a little bit more colorful images which I have photographed during the same hike on the Dobratsch Mountain in the beginning of January 2019.

I like such minimalist images, especially when they are photographed in black & white or are converted to monochrome, but in my eyes these tree stumps look better in color.

On my way back down from the Mountain I have taken photos of the lakes north and east of my position. I have already shown some of the other images I have taken there before, I believe.

It was a hazy morning with little contrasts and the photos didn't look good in monochrome, but still kind of nice in color with this subtle orange color stripe on the horizon and the light morning mist climbing up from the valley.

While the sky behind the other tree stump has been more or less cloudless, a couple of minutes later and only a few meters forther down the path, some clouds have been growing behind this tree stump.

The above photos were taken more towards to the north and the east. The Karawanks mountain range in the south has still been a little bit more covered by clouds, but the morning sun had already begun to illuminate the sky and the clouds and a little later the clouds dissolved and the sky turned blue there too, as you can see in the last photo.

I would love to know which of the photos you prefer - the colored or the monochrome versions.

So, that was all for today - I hope you like my photos of a morning hike I really enjoyed.
Maybe in a few weeks I will find more time to engage and post more on the Hive, but I can't do much more than to hope ... time will tell.
