I thought I’d try something a little different for Cee’s Black & White Challenge.
This is one of my favorite shots from Hawaii, but it didn’t come from some spectacular wilderness setting. In the property next to a gas station, there was an interesting group of trees. This was taken looking up from underneath two of them, but closer to the one on the left. I love the patterns of the branches reaching skyward, and in color the contrast of the branches against the lush green with red flowers makes this work. When I converted it to grayscale, it just fell flat. And then I thought, what’ll happen if I click on Inverse? The network of branches came back to life!

Thank you, Cee! I’m glad you had this challenge to give me a reason to play around with this image.

I really like this photo. Isn’t funny how some of our favorite shots can be in some of the least spectacular places?!

Thank You. It’s always good to keep the camera handy…you never know when something interesting will appear!
