Black & White #1

Sunrift Gorge
Glacier National Park, Montana

Strong black and white images come from contrast, both light and dark and different textures. In this photograph the white water contrasts with the dark rocks. And the smooth water from a slow shutter speed contrasts with the rough rock of the gorge. The slight curve of the water adds to the sense of movement in the image.
