Monument Rocks Panoramic in B&W

As I’m sure you know by now, I was completely impressed with this trip to Monument Rocks. They area series of Chalk Formations with lots of fossils throughout the soil. This gives them a very light appearance, and with the shadows and the sun, made for some interesting contrasts for the Black & White Photos. Just for size comparison, some of these are over 60 feet high. Hope you enjoy!

Another B&W Photo

Today I was revisiting some of my pictures from earlier in the year. Back in October, my wife and I went to Echo Cliff near Dover, KS. This shot was interesting in color, even with a lot of the trees and leaves in shadow, with the light coming through them. However, I thought the B&W of the same image really accentuated the light and the shadows, which drew me into the picture in a way that I hadn’t seen it before. At any rate, I certainly hope you all enjoy it as well!

Backyard Shadows

Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I was out in my backyard the other day, and saw this image as the sun was beginning to go down for the evening. The shadows of the trees stretched across the still green grass, ever-changing as the wind moved the tress ever so subtly. The contrasts made for an interesting sight. I hope you all enjoy!
