Our challenge this week is to take a color shot and turn it to black and white.
All these shots are from the last week and take with my new Canon Powershot SX50 HS.
We spent a couple of days at Mt. Rainier and a couple of days in Seattle.
|There is not much color to start with in this White River crossing.|
|The cloudy color of the water comes from the glacial flour--bits of rock ground down by the Emmons Glacier which feeds it.|
|Reflection of the blue sky enhances the river surface.|
|The yellow monkey flowers are lost in the black and white version, so I cut them off. The texture of the water carries over.|
|Looking east from the Silver Forest trail, the layers of the mountain ridges provide a contrast...|
(I really did take this picture last week, despite the fact that it looks like my template's stock background.)
|...that renders nicely in black and white. I am channeling Ansel Adams.|
|We made a quick exit while the Mariners were putting the final touches on their win over the Chicago White Sox.|
|We made it to our bus and did not have to wait another hour. But again the original is not much different.|
|How many planes in this shot at the Museum of Flight?|
