This is one of my favorites of the many photos I took Saturday morning (07/23/11). It’s not the image I was going after but, believe me, I am not disappointed.
I made a special point of getting up early and heading to the harbor in Algoma, WI in hopes of capturing a beautiful sunrise. The sky looked promising as I drove, however, when I got to the harbor, it was enveloped by fog. There wasn’t going to be a sunrise to photograph. I decided to stick around anyway and capture some images of the lighthouse in the fog. Since fog has a way of draining everything of color, I switched to shooting in black and white.
Eventually the fog lifted some, the sun got higher and I kept snapping. This is the first of several images I’ll be sharing from that morning. Check back often.
I haven’t done much in black and white but after this series of photos, I think I’ll be doing more.
