Category Archives: Black and White Photography

I decided to try a little black and white photography during a walk through the woods.



We scheduled a shopping trip to Hudson, Wisconsin with a side trip for a short hike down to Willow Falls.

It had bee really warm so there was almost no ice on the falls. In fact there was still a lot of green to be found.

A couple of shots had almost no color so I converted them to black and white.

After a bitterly cold day on Friday things warmed up a bit so my wife and I drove over to the After Hours Ski Trails for a morning of cross country skiing. Conditions were outstanding.




The leaves were just starting to turn color when we made an early fall visit to Bond Falls. It was a rainy day so we didn’t stay long.



Bond falls lends itself to black and white photography so I took a few black and white photos of the waterfalls.



Cross country skiing has been hit or miss this year with all of the warm weather. We have managed several trips to the After Hours Ski Trails in Brule, Wisconsin. They have some beautiful trails. These were taken in a large Birch forest. I suspect it would be really beautiful during the fall colors.







I have a friend who spends a lot of time photographing a plum thicket. My equivalent is my Sumac patch. I photograph the Sumac patch year around. Last week I was out photographing after a snowfall.




This was the first time in two years we have had enough snow to ski on the Red Cedar Trail. It was such a beautiful day that we skied nine mile which turned out to be a bit much for our first time out.

Christmas morning I took a walk through the woods after a fresh wet snowfall.





While I was processing this photo of the Blue Hills I decided to process the same photo several times with a different approach each time.

Because of the dramatic sky we encountered on our visit to Yellowstone National Park I decided to convert some of my photos to Black and White to see how they would look.
