Black-and-White at Big Bend

Moonrise over the Window, Chisos Mountains

I decided to do something different and go retro – back to black-and-white.  These are a few of my favorite BW images of Big Bend National Park in far west Texas.  I worked and lived in Big Bend for two winters, and it is truly a special place.    Of course, these are all digital images.

    Wow! Shades of Ansel Adams. Great shot, Cindy. 🙂

    Thanks Bob – Ansel would have had a few more “zones” in his images, but he was definitely the master.
