Beautiful & Wonderful in Black & White

2010.04.23

Rainfall and mist in a mountain valley

I just loved this little fuzzy bush on the top of solid rock!
pixel
Some of the formations look other-worldly

This is probably my favorite shot of the day - Larry taking a photo in the distance and me taking a photo of him in the rearview mirror!
pixel
The highway is literally carved through the mountains
pixel
The Aquarius Mountains were layer after layer of hills and peaks
pixel
I know...it seems impossible that this rock doesn't roll!

A cloudy sunset over the desert

This is mostly what I saw today - mountains in the distance through a rainy-splattered car window

Most of our day was spent in the car, driving from Las Vegas to Peoria, Arizona for our next golf course. We've been "lucky" enough to be in every location where they've had record rainfall! Today, it rained intermittently on us the whole time. But, there was such a beauty in the rainfall on the desert mountains! When I began editing these for the post tonight, they seemed to cry out for black and white!

(To all of my Photoblog friends: I appreciate all the nice comments and I'm trying really hard to answer as many as I can! We're driving all day and then posting around 10-11:00 at night in a hotel room! I promise I'll catch up with all your wonderful posts ASAP!)

threepeas You made a great choice in posting these in black and white. I hardly ever remember to try landscapes in B & W...these are creative and composed well. I hope you're getting enough golf in with all the rain!

????? It always amazes me what can be achieved in black and white...how the right contrast and tones can stimulate such vivid and lucid imaginings...you provide such a varied range of good examples in this post.
Don't forget to look for your more colourful offering in the gallery today...God bless

RayNvb Nice set. Too bad for the uncooperative weather you guys have had to deal with. Number 7 is really nice in B/W. And the one with Larry in the rear view mirror?.... Great material for a country song!
