Black and White Photo Challenge #2

The fine folks at Forest Garden invited me to participate in a Black and White Photo Challenge. It is indeed a challenge in that I have not been in the habit of looking for opportunities to take photographs in black and white. I’ve been a color kind of guy for forty years or more. Nonetheless, they have motivated me to alter my perspective to add black and white to the photo files.

Yesterday, before the rain came, it was completely overcast, gray and dark and dreary. As I went out in the morning to get the paper, I saw the tall oak trees across the way silhouetted against the sky. Could this be the subject of my second response to the challenge?


My thanks to the Woodland Gnomes at Forest Garden for giving me this challenge. I’m glad to say I am enjoying it.

  1. Beautiful! Thank you for the link, John. The pingbacks aren’t showing up in my comments. I’m sorry it has taken me so long to find your photo. Are those buds beginning to open on the branches? Lovely silhouette.
