I have always loved Black & White photography. It's what I cut my teeth on back in the mid 70s when I started out on my photographic journey. While the genre has always maintained some popularity, I have had few opportunities to showcase my B&W imagery over the years as the genre was never high up on my clients' lists. This changed a little this year with a couple of publications featuring my Black & White photography. Outdoor Photography Canada magazine recently featured an article that I illustrated in the latest issue (#44) of the magazine. 'A Black & White Primer' introduces the topic. A second article by colleague Wayne Simpson explores the medium further in his article 'Lifting the Veil of Colour'. Also, check out my newest calendar called 'CANADA in Black & White' by Wyman Publishing.

The latest issue of 'Outdoor Photography Canada' magazine (Issue #44) is now on the bookstands. My latest 'Discovering Canada' article features British Columbia's 'HAIDA GWAII' - the highlight of my 2016 travel season. What a place! As I mentioned earlier, OPC celebrate its 10th Anniversary this year ! It is hard to believe that I have now illustrated 44 different locations in 'Discovering Canada'! Lots of other excellent articles too by some excellent photographers!

This is my third image in the #treesinfourseasons challenge. Autumn is 'a many splendoured season'. It is bright and joyous at peak colour. Normally, we focus our attention on deciduous trees as they turn color in the fall when the pigments within the leaves change with the shorter days and early frost before the onset of winter. On my recent trip to photograph fall colors in Ontario, I noticed these beautiful larches backlit in my friend's (Peter Blahut) aunt's yard. Larches, also known as tamaracks, are deciduous conifers, meaning that they lose their needles (leaves) in the fall, unlike other evergreen trees. The needles of the larches turn yellowish - orange and, when backlit, seem to glow more brilliantly!
I challenge Kelly Funk - my friend, colleague and regular contributor to Outdoor Photography Canada magazine - to the #treesinfourseasons challenge.
Your challenge images must represent all four seasons, one from each season. With each entry please challenge one other person and use the hashtag #treesinfourseasons so everyone can search to find all the entries as the challenge progresses.
