5 Stunning Black and White Summer Photos

Posted by John Entwistle on Tue, Aug 14, 2012

When up in the mountains, there is such a vast array of colours in every direction. Green meadows, blue alpine lakes, red flowers; the list goes on! Sometimes, when you take the colour out of the picture (literally), you are left to appreciate the true beauty of nature that surrounds you out in the mountains. 

Some photographers have a great eye for when to shut off the colour, and let the landscape speak for itself. Here are my five favorite black and white shots from this summer at CMH:


1. Building thunderclouds always make for fantastic black and white photographsCMH Hiking


2. Towering spires poking out of the snowBugaboos
