A new image I am particularly happy with…

Here is another selection of floral/botanical images in black and white. Black and white photography is the art of exploring the interplay between light and shadow. These floral images provide great opportunities to do so. What is fascinating is that a slight change in one parameter or another can result in a completely different – yet still realistic – image when viewed in monochrome.The gallery was not found!

This tree was photographed on the California Pacific Ocean coast in the Big Sur, looking out towards the Pacific Ocean. The image has been a favorite of mine, but for some reason it got mislaid or misfiled or something, just turning up recently. I like the way the tree shows the effects of the coastal weather. Tree and ocean and weather are all part of one ecosystem, almost a single organism.

This is a Larch bough. The larch tree is distinctive in that it’s a needle-bearing coniferous tree that is also deciduous, i.e. it drops its needles in winter. The image reminds me of some works by the American painter, Andrew Wyeth, whose work I’ve always liked. I can’t say I had this in mind when I shot the image, but as it emerged in post I found myself thinking of Wyeth and wanting to achieve this particular look.
