Driving home from work today the gauge in my car read 104 degrees! Even for Texas that is hot on June 16th! After seeing this I had to think cooler thoughts so decided to go with a landscape from this winter. I don't convert alot of my photos to black and white but when I looked at this photo it screamed put me in black and white. Why? The huge contrast of lights and darks from shooting directly into the sun. The dark sky, the white snow, the dark trees, the amazing white clouds. I put this photo into my Nik Software and produced this great black and white photo from atop the mountains in Deer Valley Utah. I am quite happy with the result. So here is to cooler temps in Texas!
