Black and White

The old black and white

Tattered and frayed

Sun blotched


It’s what we have

It represents an interval most nanoscopic in nature

Insignificant and trivial


Yet those mere seconds were monumental


It doesn’t capture the minutes or hours before

And we know little of the days and weeks after

It hardly matters

Splendor would not have alluded you for long

And would tie in some way to this very juncture

Your accomplishments in this world were bountiful

You’ve been gone a long time now

But the old black and white

Flawed and imperfect

Encapsulates everything you were about

Natural landscapes: the flowing winter water

Stunning landscape photos



Early winter is the best time to capture beautiful Rocky Mountain rivers like this, before they’ve almost totally frozen over. I was blessed to find this viewpoint from a bridge crossing the river near Lake Louise. There was very little colour in this scene, so it was an easy decision to go black-and-white. That said, here’s the colour version for comparison:
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter
