I liked my earlier post of The Windtower in color but prefer the moodiness of this impressive spire in monochrome.

Just one of the peaks that grabs one's attention when driving north on the TransCanada Highway near Canmore.

Your views, comments, faves and suggestions are always appreciated!

I haven't shared a b/w image for awhile. Here we have Mt. Nestor rising above Smuts Creek in Kananaskis Country.

I'm a fan of grayscapes and enjoy choosing and processing images that I think work well in shades of one tone. I've long admired the works of Ansel Adams.

"Monochrome photography is photography where each position on an image can record and show a different amount of light, but not a different hue. It includes all forms of black-and-white photography, which produce images containing tones of neutral grey ranging from black to white. Other hues besides grey, such as sepia, cyan or brown can also be used in monochrome photography. In the contemporary world, monochrome photography is mostly used for artistic purposes and certain technical imaging applications, rather than for visually accurate reproduction of scenes."

Thanks for taking a look!

There is something primordial about watching and listening to the sounds and rhythm of waves.

The first successful black and white image was taken by Joseph Nicephore Niepce a French developer. However, it got destroyed as he attempted to make copies of it. He was again successful in 1825, where he managed to produce a black and white image of a window.

Throughout the 19th century, most photography was monochrome photography: images were either black-and-white or shades of sepia. Occasionally personal and commercial photographs might be hand tinted. Colour photography was originally rare and expensive and again often containing inaccurate hues. Color photography became more common from the mid-20th century.

However, black-and-white photography has continued to be a popular medium for art photography, as shown in the picture by the well-known photographer Ansel Adams. Wiki

An iconic view of the Lower Falls of the Yellowstone river seen from the Lookout Viewpoint. The Red Rock viewpoint is below.

This canyon is world famous for it's gorgeous yellow and orange hues and tones. I found presenting it in monochrome brought a different mood, unique and dramatic.

This is the spot where Thomas Moran painted the Lower Falls to inspire Congress in 1872. The painting played a crucial role in convincing the Congress make Yellowstone the first national park. Thank you Thomas!
