We had a most glorious day. The storm from yesterday cleared out and we took off to go snowshoeing in Grand Teton National Park. Before we got into the park we decided to see if we could find any bighorn sheep in the elk refuge. The sheep were there, but too far away for us to see well or photograph. As we headed back into town, I spotted this mountain that I thought might be a good candidate for black and white photography. The textures in the snow and sky were interesting. This conversion is definitely not reality, but I had fun trying to make it look dramatic. Below it are a couple from the hike up toward Taggart Lake. I like the color versions better from the hike, but am sharing the black and white in this shoot.

You may not always be fond of the snow Terri but you make the most of it. Nicely done.

One reason "Eigernordwand" is so well known and subject to so many great stories and dramas about alpine climbing is its easy accessibility. One can practically walk and touch it, it's so close, so familiar, yet so deadly in the wrong conditions.

Love the details in the building. Nice use of black and white.

We have only attended basketball games of our grandkids virtually this winter. Yesterday was my granddaughter's last game at a gym that is about 5 minutes from our home. My daughter called and said that there were hardly any people there and we could safely socially distance. So I grabbed my camera, which had an 85 f1.8mm lens on it and quickly went to watch the part of the game that was remaining. The lighting was mixed and horrible. So I thought these might be better converted to B&W. I also messed up on the shutter speed. I had it too slow. Not my finest photography experience. But hopefully came away with a couple of photos my granddaughter will like.

You did well under the circumstances. Clearly B&W was a good choice here.

Quite a disparity in sizes among those girls!

Dreary late winter day on the forest road where I do my daily walk...

Yes, the different growth rates are interesting. Also, the opposing team had younger girls. They opted to play up to a higher level to give the girls tougher experience. (I'm not so sure that is a good idea.....)
