I have written in this space before about shooting various landscapes. Again, in the digital age, this can seem a fairly simple task. But, if you think about the kind of image you wish to make, it can often turn out to be a bit more intricate to make just the right kind of image.
I came upon this church in a little town in Colorado many years ago. I went back about thirty years later to find the same church. The image I made that many years ago was with a 2 ¼ x 2 ¼ camera in B&W. When I returned to the same place all those years later, I wanted to duplicate what I had originally shot in B&W. Actually, the conditions when I went back were actually better. I put the camera on a tripod and made the image with a 25A (red) filter to heighten the contrast in the sky. It is another one of those images that really lends itself to B&W.
