(NOT a black and white image!) I captured this sailboat during a whale-watching excursion off Long Beach, California. Very strong sunlight was streaming through a large hole in the clouds (note the darker sea in the far background, beneath clouds), creating dramatic, high-contrast lighting that turned a full-color capture into something that looks like black and white but definitely is not (it’s a trick of the unusual light that afternoon)! (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 70-300mm zoom at 70mm, f/8, 1/4000 sec., ISO 100, afternoon sun, handheld)
