I was so intrigued by the ever-changing scene at Oxbow Bend that I decided share one more shot…well this shot ended up becoming two different photographs. After going down close to the water for the first reflection shots I went back up to the viewing deck to shoot a few shots. The cloud movement made for a very dramatic sky but I had to hurry to get in a few shots before the clouds covered Mt. Moran.
I started processing this photo and the clouds looked great, but I thought I would convert it to black & white to see if I could make the clouds more dramatic. I think the black & white looks a little more dramatic and gives the scene an Ansel Adams feel to the photo. That’s my opinion anyway. Now I’m not sure which one I like better.
What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear your opinion on the shot.

If you missed it yesterday on Google+ or Facebook I created a panorama of Oxbow Bend available for print from my store. The panorama was made from 3 shots to give you enough detail for a large size gallery print for your home or office. It’s currently available in my store for ordering.
