Black and White, White Mountains – During my film days, I shot roll after roll of AGFA Scala, but now in the digital era all my black and white images start off in color and with the use of various image editing programs I covert them to black and white. Admittedly, I don’t work much with black and white anymore, but I have always enjoyed viewing black and white scenes of the White Mountains.
Here in the New Hampshire White Mountains, during the winter months, the weather can be less than ideal for creating the picture perfect mountain landscape scene. And when sunrise and sunset is less than spectacular, and the sky is overcast gray, I still turn to black and white. A colorless landscape scene can come to life when presented in black and white. Today I want to share a few black and white scenes with you, and I included a few history notes to make it a little more interesting.
