Elk Island National Park is a beautiful national park here in Alberta, east of Edmonton; besides the conservation efforts behind the administrative walls it is famous for, the park is full of colour and life, especially during the beginning of the autumn season where flora and fauna are rather spectacular. However, sometimes when I am in the park, I do not see the images in front of me as the vivid colour in which they actually are, but in black and white.
Hoping I can transfer my vision to the camera, I give it a shot … at times it works, and at times it doesn’t.
That’s the beauty of photography – we keep going back for more. Hopefully we never stop going back …
Below are some past attempts of seeing in black and white. You decide which ones worked and which images did not. 🙂
