Trees - New Black and White Challenge

December 2nd, 2018
Time for a new black and white challenge. A big thank you to Mark @markp for hosting the last one in such style, and with key as a great choice of subject. It is an honour to find myself hosting the next round, for which I have chosen the topic of trees.

I hope that you will agree with me that whatever the season, trees provide an enormous source of inspiration in photography, and I look forward to seeing your interpretation, whether it be a single tree, a trunk, branches or some other detail, whether your tree is dead or alive, clothed or naked. I suspect there may be a few Christmas seasonal trees creeping it too!

This is black and white challenge number 36, so simply tag your entry


and I look forward to seeing all your tree compositions.

Your photo must be taken between now (2 December) and Sunday 16 December and submitted between those dates, to be included for judging.

Thank you Helen Jane, yes an excellent subject. I think I'll have to have a look around.

@helenhall It would be helpful to be able to click on the bw-36 link from this page but I can't because it isn't a hyperlink. I have to find someone's photo linked to this to be able to see the photos so far.

@onewing I have this sorted now - when I set up the challenge, the guide on how to do this was not working for me and I had forgotten how to do it!
