I’m discovering that taking photos in black and white brings out amazing textures and shadowing. I went for a short snowshoe hike along the Angora Ridge in South Lake Tahoe. It was midday and the lighting was pretty harsh. I switched my camera to Monochrome and took a few shots of the Crystal Range mountains in the distance.

I was out wandering around in Hope Valley, CA recently but it appears that I wasn’t the only one leaving tracks in the snow.
Recent snowstorms have the trees covered with snow. These trees looked like figures weighted down with heavy burdens.
