Nature in Black and White

2013 August 15

It’s interesting how the feeling of a place changes when you view it without color. Sometimes the scene appears more stark in black and white, other times more serene. For me, there is something about a black and white photograph that truly captures a moment in time.

Recently we have received several striking photos of nature depicted in black and white that we wanted to share here. Thanks to Jared Kofsky, Danny Hart, and Paul (StraightRazR100 on Flickr) for sharing these photographic moments with us.

    Thanks for using my photo, but on the Facebook page, you have the last photo on the page listed is mine. Would it be possible to correct this to my photo in the Passaic River?
