I am working on a piece about the grain elevators of Saskatchewan and this one image of a lone sentinel caught my eye as a good candidate to experiment with black & white. The dreary, cloudy late afternoon light of a late winter's day robbed the scene of any shadow and color but, combined with a bold composition, provided a simplicity that could not have been achieved otherwise. This image of an abandoned elevator and solitary tree was captured in Horizon, Saskatchewan.
On the winding, narrow highway that hugs the Gulf of St. Lawrence on the Gaspe Peninsula in Quebec flows this tall, narrow waterfall. I have photograhed it on many occasions but this time I converted this image of a detail of the fall into black & white.
I photographed this small roadside waterfall near Joffre Lakes Provicial Park east of Pemberton, British Columbia near the Canadian West Coast. At the time I captured this image I envisoned it would translate well in black & white.
