PHOTOS 29: CLOUD PATTERNS, PART 8:
    CLOUD DRAMA IN BLACK & WHITE 
      IN NEW HAMPSHIRE AND MAINE       
 
MARCH 8, 2006
 
 
"Black and white photography does more to evoke an emotion and freeze
a moment in time than any other medium. Looking back over the decades
at such famous photographers as Steigletz, Weston, Adams, and others
has helped elevate black and white photography to a fine art form.
The subtle tones of grays, the strong emphasis of the blacks, and the
softness of the whites makes one look much closer at the subject and composition due to the lack of natural color . . ."  -Bob Snell

I must say I've been looking at our photos in a "different light" recently.

This is a continuation of the last essay, my experiment in turning some of our color photos of clouds (and lakes and mountains) into studies in black and white through the magic of Photoshop software.

It's not as simple as you'd think to find photos with the contrast needed to show well with no color. I prefer the color versions, but I've learned some things and this has been a fun departure.

This essay will focus on some of the photos from New Hampshire and Maine that you've seen previously in a kaleidoscope of color. There's certainly no lack of great views in those mountains from which to choose! As usual, I went overboard here.

NEW HAMPSHIRE DRAMA IN BLACK & WHITE

 

 

 

 

The next set of photos is from Franconia Ridge in New Hampshire:

 

 

 

 

 

 

These photos are in the Presidential Range in New Hampshire:

I'll end the black-and-white theme with that beautiful view of the Penobscot River in the shadow of Mt. Katahdin (Katahdin isn't shown in this series).

This has been fun. You CAN teach an old dog new tricks!

Next up:  scenes of the beautiful blue ridges for which the Appalachians are renowned. I'll resume using color photos and leave further photo effects for later on.

Happy trails,
