Very eerie looking lake there Henry. Almost out of one of those Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings type
of movies. :D

Thanks, Andy and Sury. I recall that we were driving from Memphis, Tennessee to Austin, Texas in December 1999 and the route we were taking took us about 100 miles from Caddo Lake. I noticed it on the map and had always wanted to visit so we took a big detour to go to it. I think I shot about a roll of slide film there. Last year I scanned some of them. This week I took the raw scans and processed 4 of the Caddo Lake photos and imported them into Lightroom. Here are 3 more. I see that I should work on the color balance a bit on the 4 photos to make them all the same. :lol:

They all have wonderful textures, and an almost monochrome feel - great stuff, Henry :)

Continuing my journey into black and white landscape pictures. More rainy day pictures from my recent trip to the Isle of Skye. These were taken on a very windy day, alongside the rain. I was really worried about getting crisp pictures as keeping the tripod steady was a challenge. I weighted it down with my camera bag (hooray for heavy lenses!) and shielded it as best I could with my body. I think these came out okay. I recommend a good air blower to keep the lens clear of rain, rather than wiping with a microfibre cloth.

Hi, :)

Landscape 2015 is already a very entertaining and engaging thread with the few that are submitted. Good work guys, there's good outcomes of diligent hours here. : )

Bakubo, as always you found some of the most intriguing locations that provide home to some interestingly shaped trees and waterscape to enhance the eerie looks.
Birma, Isle of Skye is an endless source for enchanting photos. The rain that's very much visible in the distance is like wind-blown threads linking the heavy, dark clouds to the seascape. Black&White conversion definitely helps make the scene appear as a field of textures in collaboration along with displaying a magnificient landscape.

Thanks for sharing,
Yildiz

Hey Yildiz - great to hear from you! :)

Thank you for your kind words. I hope all is well with you, and also that we'll see some more pictures of Spring around the Bosphorus soon :)

Hello Andy! :D

Nothing about Isle of Skye with you behind the camera is ever merely prone to get kind praises; lots of challenging weather shifting to provide for many different shots. It was one of the times I realized that you became a very good photographer....

Sadly, the Bosphorus only has a dull grey, sort of hazy atmosphere that doesn't bear any promises of Spring at the moment. Expecting rain in a couple of hours but I don't think it will bring around a neat sky later tomorrow either. :)
Hopefully I'll shoot some photos and will share them with you guys. :D Missed the forum productivity for sure.

Hope to see you all and be back soon. : )

Yildiz,
You are so kind...Thank you.

Here are a couple from my Grand Canyon trip a year ago, "reprocessed".
I was going for more subtle changes and tried to create as close
possible as to how I remembered the sunrise. I was attempting to
capture the sun's rays hitting parts of the landscape as it was rising
on horizon and the warmth of golden hour.

I especially like that second one! Reminds me so much of a sunset at the Grand Canyon my first time there in 1999.

Thank you Sury, Mike and Henry :)

Mike - they are still be battered by the wind and rain up there at the moment I hear from the family. How are things over on your side?

Henry - bring your rain coat and stout foot wear, ... and of course your camera :)
