I must say I've been looking at our photos in a "different light"
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
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:
MIST AND CLOUDS OVER MAINE
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.
