On a trip to Antarctica a few years ago we were sailing in a channel between two large mountains photographing feeding humpback whales. It was a wonderful evening with photo opportunities of the starboard and port bows. I was at the stern of the ship and heard a lot of shouts coming from the bow. Something must be happening. A few seconds later, as we moved forward, we got the glimpse of the moon rising next to this mountain. The sky was pink, magenta and the snow had a special color to it. It was a great look, and I got great shots. You know it’s good when the captain of the ship comes out and turns the ship in a circle so he can take a picture with his point and shoot.
A month ago from this post I revisited my images. I loved this shot and decided I needed to see it in BW. Thus, I worked on the BW conversion. This is what I got. I tuned it for dark sky’s and subtle grays. It kind of reminds me of an Ansel Adams photo.
Hope you like it.
