Monochrome Romanesco

Romanesco Brocolli in black and white

A few days ago I posted a picture of a Romanesco. This is the same one from a different perspective and in monochrome rather than in color.

At first I wasn’t sure I liked the monochrome. The color of the Romanesco is beautiful and adds a lot to its interest. However, black and white photography has always interested me and I like the way the light and shadows here play on the photo.

A Powerful Image

I’m facinated with photographing power lines and poles. I love finding a series of lines that follow the natural flow of the land. Or a transmission tower against a blue morning sky. There’s something about the man-made vs nature aspect of electricity transmission that draws me to it.

That’s why I was happy to find another “powerful” subject on a hike I took over the weekend. This is a perfect example of what I’m talking about here. Unfortunately, I still haven’t found anyone else who shares my curiosity on the topic.
