I’m generally tentative when it comes to converting my images to black and white.  Translation: my skillset for this area is extremely primitive and results can be hit or miss.

These next few images, however, really lend themselves to a black and white format. Removing the color creates capital-D Drama, with intense blacks and sky-swallowing grays. Clean blue reality and soft banks of fluffy white can’t compete.

You really need to see this last image at full resolution.


These photos were taken two months ago in Sheboygan, Wisconsin.

    Very powerful!

    • Thanks, Karen. I suppose I will have to wait for foul weather before I can get any more of these. Oh, wait…Spring will be over in a week, Summer finished by July 4, Fall scoots into early September and then bam! Winter is back!

    Drama indeed! These are stellar and worthy of gallery exposure…the series as one….oh yes.
