Photo of the Week – Grand Canyon in Black & White

7 Comments 29 October 2010

An eerie, dead tree sits at the edge of the most grand canyon in the world.  During my recent photo trip to the Grand Canyon, I decided to try some black and white photography since I couldn’t seem to capture the greatness of the canyon in color.  I wondered if the black and white photography would give it a different feel.  I really enjoy switching to black and white photography occasionally, it reminds me how important it is to know where your light is.

  1. Sherry: This is SO weird, but I swear I have almost the exact same photo of the same dead tree, taken back in the 70′s! I wonder if that’s even possible?

  2. Gillian says:

    I think black and white definitely does it justice!!

  3. Tran says:

    This is my first time to see the Grand Canyon in B&W. It’s beautiful!

  4. Mark H says:

    I’ve never really tried B&W photography but doesn’t it complteely change the mood of the place. Such places of natural beauty always harks backs to the mesmerising photos of Ansel Adams.

    Gorgeous! The black and white tones do change the feeling of it a bit–definitely seems more artistic and even a little ominous. The reds and oranges generally make the canyon look so warm, so I enjoy seeing them looking a little more dark and moody! Beautiful shots.
