October Freebie Prize Draw

"One, Two, Three Snow!" by Mark Highton Ridley.

Loving Mark Highton Ridley's Fine Art Photography. I'm so excited today. I entered October Free Prize Draw, in which three lucky folks will each receive a signed, mounted Fine Art print by Highton Ridley of their choice.

Enter October Free Prize  Draw NOW!

And who knows, maybe you are the lucky one! Details to enter the October Free Prize Draw are here .                                                        
Mark Highton Ridley is a talented photographer from Plymouth, UK. He is definitely a gifted artist and a master of Fine Art Monochrome Photography.
Black and White Photography carries a lot of depth and interest and all of his images are absolutely stunning.

Mark Highton Ridley's main site over at: http://www.highton-ridley.co.uk/ is all about the Fine Art of Monochrome Photography.
As he perspicaciously says "...colour is all fine and dandy. Some shots take my breath away in their appeal to my higher senses. But it takes b&w to pluck at my more basic primeval instincts.
I think it's that connection which attracts me to this genre."

I'm sure you'll love his excellent work as much as I did. xx

I am so jealous of all photographers that take beautiful photos. Wish I could.

Yeah, monochrome photographies carry a lot more depth in them. I've felt it many times.

I hope you win that draw. Wish you good luck!

Oh Betty, I was at work and was going to stop in, trust me. I love the gutter with the snow around it, the lamppost, like a sentinel. It's all very lonely and stark in its black and whiteness. And I'm sure you would be very happy to have that gracing your house. :) Very eerie, and very nice!

Thanks for sharing.

Queenmothermamaw said...

Hello Betty, thanks for your visit. I love photography mostly family since I am The Memory Keeper. I love B&W but don't do it much any more. If I wanted to do a series for display I would choose B&W but we have such a large family, I would have to set that aside to do. Right now I am doing handpainted and crafted Christmas gifts for my 6 children and 10 grands. Look forward to getting to know you better.'
