Natural Black and White
It still amazes me how light changes. Light is such a powerful tool and how it reacts with the world always fascinates me. When it comes to sunsets we are very accustomed to seeing brilliant yellows, oranges and reds. What’s not as normal is seeing the absence of light to the point where it’s almost black and white. Besides the glow on the horizon there really wasn’t any light present when it took this. Now you might be saying that I just changed in post, well I didn’t. Unlike other landscape images of mine this one wasn’t touched in ACR because there was nothing to finish. While I was shooting towards the sunlit nothing is really backlit merely the cloud layer was so thick that nothing was coming through. It’s strange to see in person especially since 180 degrees the other way the sky looked completely different.
