Early Winter, Clouds, Yosemite

By smartbox
Black and white expression has always been my true passion within the realm of fine art photography. I donít know how to explain it but the tranquil quality of black and white tones touches the inner depths of my soul unlike any other type of photographic medium. It is a connection that I canít put into words but only express within a photograph.

With a lot of my captures, I have an image in my minds eye at the moment of exposure. My goal is always to stay true to that vision. This image is the end result.

Thanks for looking.

A very effective photograph. I suspect you may even be able to push the contrast a little further.
