Hey Folks,

Sometimes black and white just seems to work. And usually it’s apparent before I even set up the camera. Rarely do I convert images to black and white after I’ve shot them if I hadn’t planned on doing so beforehand.

This photo I shot a few winters ago, high on a ridge in Wrangell – St. Elias National Park. I like the backlit snow, and a slight breeze kicked up, blowing snow over the ridge.

I’m looking forward to getting out and shooting a bit more over the next couple of months; this winter has seen me tied to the computer more than I hoped, but hopefully that’s almpost past and I can go shoot a little bit more. Some of these old photos from past winters have inspired me to go do it some more, and I’m looking forward to getting out soon.

Cheers

Carl

  1. There are days I definitely think in monochrome, Carl, and like you I often will visualize an image in b&w before shooting it. Not always, but most of the time.

    Love the image you posted–looks like a sand dune.

  2. Carl, very dramatic photograph. Ive just come back from a sand dune shoot my self. That must have been a windy day… a good effect. Cheers Steve
