Black and White Photography, Photography

Turn To Stone !


Everything just seemed to cooperate with me today to capture this scene from the clouds to the angle of the sun on the snow. When I was photographing this scene I could not help but think of the song by The Electric Light Orchestra – “Turn To Stone”. I hope you enjoy.

Nikon D7000 and Tokina 12-24 f4.0 lens – 1/400 @ f/8.0 – 12mm focal length. A Formatt/HiTech 0.9 graduated ND filter was also used.

    Everything in this photo is perfect. The wonderful clouds, the reflection, like diamonds, on the water, the foreground with the snow and rocks, a beautiful composition and it works so well in black and white πŸ™‚


    • Thank you very much Elina πŸ˜€ I knew you would recognize the bridge πŸ˜€ actually it was a very clear day and you can also just about make out the other two bridges in the photo. The second bridge is just about in the middle of the photo and the drawbridge is just to the right of it. If you Google Earth it you will see them a lot clearer (they are on the same road Robert Moses Causeway). Have a wonderful weekend πŸ˜€

    Now you’ve done it! I have been complimenting my friend Mike on his approach to the processing of black and white photos and then you come along and post this. Are you two brothers or what? I can see a difference but I can’t tell which I like best.


    • Mike comes from Brooklyn my neck of the woods. Do me a favor ask Mike how he likes his Sabretts (bet he’ll say smothered). Thank you very much for the compliment on my post and have a great evening πŸ˜€
