I enjoy processing certain photos in black and white. Perhaps it’s due to fond memories of my photography beginnings processing Tri-X in a dark room. I’ll admit though that I never was able to achieve results like I’m able today using my DSLR.
This photo was made on a sunny day at Mount Hood. I had arrived after a rain and a subsequent fresh covering of snow. The rain created these amazing lines and I knew that I needed to photograph them. I did my initial B/W conversion in Lightroom and finished the photo in Photoshop.
