Mono Barn Owls

Barn Owl Looking Down Mono

“To see in colour is a delight for the eye but to see in black and white is a delight for the soul” – Andri Cauldwell

What a fabulous quote and says everything I like about photographing barn owls in black and white, or mono. For me it makes the image much more simple and artistic, all the tones beautifully interwoven to create an image of the owl. It works really well when the owl is photographed looking into the sun, the backlighting reveals the rim light that surrounds the bird giving it a cool glow and a little bit sinister at times.

Who can blame the ancients and some modern cultures from fearing these birds as they are mostly nocturnal along with mythological creatures and witches and vampires. Although some American Indian tribes wore owl feathers to give them the power of great eyesight and stealth when hunting or in battle.

“Recently bought as an A1 print, and it’s fantastic. Apart from the image itself which is fantastic and now hanging in my living room, the quality of the paper and print itself are exceptional. Really good buying experience, quick, with great communication. First class stuff!”
