Shooting Black and White Landscapes

For years I would drive around the countryside looking for scenes suitable for creating an attractive photograph. Unlike my architecture photography which I prefer to shoot early in the morning as the morning light and lack of people are best suited for that type of photography my landscape work was done at all hours of the day. I would drive around Ontario sunroof open, windows down with a sense of creative adventure frequently pulling over to investigate a potential scene to photograph. Sadly about 80 top-level prints from this time were lost in what I call “A Digital Disaster”. fortunately the above image named “Tall Sky Tree” was not on the hard drive that failed. Maybe this summer I will venture out into the countryside and seek out some new places to photograph…yeah I think I will.
