Gallery: seeing Madagascar in black and white

And yet, I can never resist the temptation to experiment with black and white edits, and I think Iโ€™ve found enough photos among all those I took there that might work. Here they are; see what you think. There’s an emphasis on landscape and architecture but there are a few iconic wildlife species too.

Sharing for Leanneโ€™s Monochrome Madness, as usual. And also as usual, all were shot originally in colour and edited with Nik Silver Efex Pro.

My feature photo is of a local fisherman on the lake in front of the Iharana Bush Camp where we stayed near the tsingy plateau.
