Writephoto challenge March 1st: Dark

You can find details of Sue’s challenge by clicking on the link below:

At first glance, the sky looked dark and threatening, but whether it was a trick of the light or angle of the camera, Tom wasn’t sure, he just saw more.
He studied his entry, searching for a title that would do it justice and make it stand out to the judges. He didn’t want to cheat and enhance his picture with the latest technology, but there was something about the image that he couldn’t quite put his finger on.
It wasn’t the sun’s rays peeking through the clouds, casting a haziness over the lakesideย  mountains.
It wasn’t the silhouettes of the trees along the shoreline, nor the peaceful serenity of the water, and it didn’t matter that there was no-one in the frame.
And then he saw it.
Just a hint of blue sky………. blink and it disappeared. He thought it was just his imagination, but when he looked again, it was there, albeit fleetingly.
He called his pictureย The Blue in Monochrome.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Made me think of Paul Simon’s song “Kodachrome” from the early 1970s.
