Most of the time, I decide somewhere deep inside the recesses of my goofy brain when I come upon a scene if I want to shoot it in BW or in color.  In the case of this storm over the mountains… I was torn!! So I shot it both ways in camera.

Here’s the color version:


If you want to see the monochrome version, you gotta go check it out on my Facebook page!!  Go here, and tell me what you think!!

  1. Man, I’ve got to tell you… I really like both versions, Mr. B… but I’ve also got to apologize… I had no idea you had a FB page or I would have ‘liked’ it eons ago!


  2. Lovely work 🙂


  3. What an impressive sight… well caught!


  4. Derrick, After looking at both versions I prefer the Sepia looking version on your FB page. I can imagine standing in front of an 11×14 version of the photograph and feeling transported to that beautiful place and time. Almost looks like you did it with a view camera. Lovely image.


  5. They are two different photos and both beautiful! And how good to be able to take both, but if I had to choose one . . . . help!


  6. Gorgeous picture…


  7. I’m torn too. Both versions are gorgeous. Or is that each version is gorgeous? Either way, they’re beautiful.
