A Forest in Sholom Park



This photo was taken very recently. I liked the way the trees form a kind of grid. The black-and-white version was an experiment, but I thought it worth keeping.

Your experiment was quite well worth doing! I like the light in both versions.

A totally different atmosphere in the B&W, Lowell!

Lois said...

Definitely worth keeping! I can't decide which one I like better.

My goodness! Those are skinny trees! Not much like what you'd find in the Evergreen State!

Those tall, straight trees make a great pattern on both the ground and up in the air.

They all appear to standing at attention.

"These woods are lovely dark and deep" ... Especially in the B&W version!

I love trees in a grid formation like this. Definitely prefer the color version!

Yes worth playing with the b / n, it offers another view of the place.
I like both Lowell.
Good weekend ;)
Un abrazo.

Love the tall trees Lowell, we have Karri forrests down south that are amazing to walk through.

The B & W makes it look a bit mysterious.

It was a good choice to keep the black and white version, Lowell !

A skinny forest and I like the B&W one----very stark.

Sometimes black ad white makes me notice things I miss in colour. I like both versions.

I love photographing "skinny" trees. The lines are really neat. I like the B&W - very Ansel Adams!
