As the fog lifts


  1. Wow, a classic in the literal sense of the word! This one is a real beauty!

  2. Oh, that’s a gorgeous picture–the little bits of light hinting on the trees is just *fantastic*! Beautiful work!

  5. I couldn’t pass up those light conditions, Sumedh! I think this is the only photo I’ve tried in B & W.

  6. Thanks, Sara, Tabbie, Ann! There was just a little frost on the needles that caught extra light.

  7. As a old-time film photographer, I love black and white photos. Nothing beats being in the darkroom and watching the photo slowly appear before your eyes..not even playing with all the new programs for digital. Guess I’m showing my age!! LOVE THAT PHOTO!! It almost looks like an infrared photo..

  8. I remember those days too, SuzieQ. In many ways I really miss those days, but yet I really do like the digitals too.

  9. b&w is so classic. That is a great shot. Don’t give up on b&w, keep ’em coming!

  10. Thanks, Cedar! I have pretty much ignored B & W, and that’s a little strange because I enjoy seeing it: I just don’t think about doing it. I’ll have to try thinking in B & W I guess.

  11. I have no idea what to say; I’ve attempted b&w for awhile now but never really managed to get that necessary stark quality. (too many things going on in the photo perhaps?…) it did leave me to believe I’d never be an Ansel Adams anytime soon. After this shot; I think you have a better shot at it than me. :o) Really amazing shot!

  12. Thanks, Lori! I’m beginning to think that B & W is something good to add to the mix. I’m putting it on my long list of things I want to learn.

  13. Winter dressed in black & white. That’s how it feels sometimes!

  14. By this time it sure does, Maureen. We’ve had so many days this winter with no sun where everything just seems to blend together.

  15. Perfect scene for a b&w conversion Terry, almost all of my winter images are converted to b&w, I just think it sends a more powerful message to the viewer in b&w !!

  16. Yes, it seems stronger than the color version.
