Black And White At Glenbow Ranch

Aspen Grove

Buying Silver Efex Pro 2 from Nik Software was like getting a new toy. I had to resist the urge to try it out on everything. I thought this aspen grove was a suitable subject.

I also had a similar image in color so I thought the black & white would emphasise the lines and folds in the hills. The lines in the hills somewhat mirror the lines in the clouds.
