ROCKS AND A DAM – THE BLACK & WHITE CHALLENGE

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Rocks


My favorite rocks

It’s my time of year to focus almost exclusively on color, so I hat to turn my brain in another direction to meet this challenge. Probably just as well. There’s such a thing as “too focused” … and I have definitely been suffering from a touch of hyper-focus.

These shots of the dam were taken two years ago at a dam where the pond exits into a river tributary … the name of which I don’t know. I can’t get to this location anymore. Some company has taken over the building and blocked the way to the dam, which is behind the building.

Fortunately, I took a lot of pictures while I could. They have been waiting for me to “do something” with them.

    • Thank you ! I think it worked that well because it was so bright. The camera is reasonably fast, but I’ve got lots faster lenses … but that’s the longest zoom I’ve got. It lets me get close without getting close. Usually, the water is in shade. That day, it was very bright. I’ve never gotten so much detail in the water before. One of those times when the pictures came out different and a lot better than I expected. A bit of luck, good light, and the right camera 🙂

  1. I bet there is a lot of colour in some of those polished stones, Marilyn. I think I see a cat’s eye and there is some quartz. Could you post a colour version too, please?
