4 thoughts on “Photo: Lone Tree (Black and White)

  1. Some years ago, a semi-professional photographer friend sent me some of his black and white photos. I casually dismissed them as being uninteresting because of the lack of color. However, slowly I’ve learned to appreciate when black and white brings out characteristics that are hidden by color. These two shots of the same scene are to me a great example of this. My reaction to the color photo is “interesting tree, nice scenery.” But with the black and white, I can admire the contrast between the bright white of the clouds and the dark shades of the foreground tree and the background greenery, and the contrasts in the foreground grass (which look a lot better on my iPad Air than on my non-retina iMac, incidentally). Thanks for posting these two.
