I’d like to share a few black-and-white shots next. Color photography is wonderful, but I also have a deep appreciation for black and whites.

Since my past couple of posts have featured wildflowers, I thought I’d stay with that theme. This shot is the reflection of a flag iris growing in Cheadle Lake in Lebanon, Oregon. I like the abstract feel of it, especially in the bottom half of the frame.

I’ve featured various versions of this shot before. You can see them by clicking here and here. But it was the reflection of the sword-like leaves, broken up by the water movement from a morning breeze that convinced me to make the photograph. So, I tried some different crops of the best of the original shots to put the reflection in the spotlight.
