I was up early and on the beach one Saturday to catch the sunrise at Kewaunee, WI.
In addition to some nice sunlit images, (See Gold Rush and Early Amber Rising.) I also snapped a few in black & white mode. This one really captured the dynamic tonal range of the clouds above Lake Michigan, beyond the Kewaunee pier and lighthouse.

A month ago I managed to snag a number of striking B&W images of the Algoma, WI lighthouse. I posted a few of them and moved on to other subjects. Yesterday’s interaction on this blog – comparing color and b&w images (Thank You, to all who commented) – reminded me of the bunch I had neglected. This image is from that forgotten bunch.
The powerful contrast between the upper right-hand corner and the lower left-hand corner, and the range of monochrome tones between, make this a favorite for me.
Fell free to share your own thoughts below and if you like what you see, by all means, share it with others.
