Ooops! Another upload without hiding it first to give it a title and explanation. Oh well, it’s here now so some of you will probably have to come back. :-)

This shot was taken in black and white, something I never do because removing colour in editing is so easy. But I wanted to try it after being pushed to do so by the amount of mud the surging river was churning up because of the recent storms. I looked at all the images after taking a reference “guide shot” or two as well as used bracketing to help out if I missed by just a bit. But I’m still not a B&W shooter by any means so I’ll be working on this with much less interesting subjects for the immediate future and editing out colour when necessary.

Major thanks still goes to Chris Swabb, On Assignment Studios. The time he took with is detailed online mentoring of the technique put me over the top. Please see his work and leave a comment or thirty!

I’m a “scatter-focus” artist. ANYTHING may be here or roundabout my galleries. Expect nothing anywhere and you’ll always be OK. ;-)

    Great capture…love the b/w :)

  • Thank you so much, Vanessa. I actually love this series, the ones that were left natural by black and white. They will be some of my favourite shots of mine for a long time.

    Has a bit of an ethereal look, doesn’t it. Like it.

  • Yes, it does and it felt like a place to listen to God. The air was roaring and the boulders shook. I’m happy you like it because it will be one of the favourite shots for a long while. :-D
