Mother Nature is the artist. I just collect the memories…

Back to the Artesian…

I told you there was a couple other things I wanted to try at the Artesian Well this morning.  There isn’t a ton you can do with this small pool, but if you get the light right, it does everything for you…

Before the good color came up, I managed to get several nice B&W shots.  This one was the best…

B&W Sunset

When I took this one, the clouds were really quite grey with some muddy areas, and not a lot of color but for some pale blue over the Sierras.  So I flipped to monotone with a yellow contrast filter, and the tones and dynamics were fantastic for B&W.

And once the sun dipped below the ridgeline of the Sierras…those dramatic clouds came to life…

Artesian Sunset

I simply love living in this area…

Thanks for taking the time to look!
