Back to your regularly scheduled waterfall photos! haha I’m starting to think that perhaps I should mix things up a bit. I’ll try to grab some mountain or tree or beach shots soon, mmmkay? In the meantime, enjoy this little gem from Ithaca’s Treman Park. 🙂
I opted for Black and White for this one for a few reasons. First, it was taken before the leaves really started to turn beautiful shades of autumn…so the scene had that awkward, in between, non-harmonious color scheme. Also, if you read my tips on Seeing In Black and White, you’ll know that shapes and repeating patterns usually convert to monochrome well. In this case, the fallen log and the waterfall shapes complimented each other perfectly, while simultaneously creating a nice line into the frame.
Haven’t read the Learning to See in Black and White article? If you’re an iPhone/iPad/etc user, you can read it in one of the older issues of Light & Landscapes, a free magazine through the newstand app. If you’re not, I uploaded it into my Tips & Tutorials page.
